Chiswick’s Jubilee weekend – Street parties
The first street party I remember was for the Silver Jubilee (1977). I think I wore velvet loons and a purple floppy hat with an Indian silk scarf. I don’t remember going to another one for decades.
They have become more popular, or at least more frequent since the pandemic, when streets set up whatsapp support groups and socialising outside in a neighbourly way became more of a thing.
Never let it be said that Chiswick residents can’t throw a good street party. Here are a few pictures from the Jubilee weekend 2022. Just check out these cakes!
