Blossom Day Street Party W4

Blossom Day Street Party W4

The Blossom Day Street Party on Staveley Road will take place on 19th April between midday and 3pm. This will be a unique opportunity for both local residents and lovers of cherry blossom trees from further afield to come and enjoy Chiswick’s very own sakura festival.

To celebrate, Blossom Day W4 is organising a Haiku and Poem Competition for young people. Visit the website for full details: blossomdayw4.org.uk/poetry-competition where the entry form and competition rules can be found. The three winners from both age groups will be invited to read their poems at the Street Party.

There will be a stall run by young origami specialists for anyone interested in learning about the art of paper folding. Nearby a children’s art workshop will be creating paintings for a blossom collage to be exhibited in the Chiswick Library. There will also be lots of rocks for young and old to paint, hopefully with cherry blossom, then take away and hide for others to find. For those who know nothing about this outdoor treasure hunt which has become a worldwide activity, now is the time to learn. Continuing with the Japanese theme there will also be Raku firing, an incredible ancient ceramics technique that has been used for centuries in Japan.

As previously announced there will be a karate display and the opportunity to participate. Dr Bike is

offering free trial rides on their electric bikes and Chiswick Horticultural Society will be selling plants and giving gardening tips.
