Actor David Bradley joins the crowds enjoying Green Days

We spotted actor David Bradley (Harry Potter, Game of Thrones) at Green Days on Sunday, here in Chiswick to visit family. He was among thousands to turn out in the sweltering heat to enjoy live music at the bandstand, browse the craft stalls, drink beer, eat cake, play five aside football … at the start of the Bedford Park Festival.

Local MPs Ruth Cadbury (Brentford & Isleworth) and Andy Slaughter were there briefly on Saturday, before they rushed off to Uxbridge to support the Labour candidate Danny Beales in the hastily announced by-election for Boris Johnson’s seat. Green Days was opened this year by TV presenter Nicki Chapman.
