On Saturday , July 19, enjoy SouthlandsLIVE - a family friendly music festival held in the beautiful grounds of Southlands Arts Centre in The Green, West Drayton.
The only event of its kind in the area, the festival is now in its second year returning with a bigger and better line up. Nine music acts will perform across the afternoon and evening from 2pm - 9.30pm and there will also be a bar, a barbeque, puppet workshops for children, a display from Puppets with Guts - who worked on the Olympic opening ceremony and the Warhorse show - and 20 arts and craft stalls. The day will be headlined by all-girl punk band The Tuts, fresh from Glastonbury festival.
Adults pay £7.50, children under 12 pay £5, children under five go free.
On Sunday witness an impressive event to mark the centenary of the First World War with Harmondsworth Remembers.
The High Street through the village will close to traffic between 8am and 5pm on July 20 as part of a WW1 commemoration organised by Harmondsworth residents Phil and Veronica Rumsey.
The names of 94 men who perished in the First World War will be read aloud in a ceremony with the British Airways Band and Uxbridge Choral Society at 1pm.
The Friends of the Great Barn at Harmondsworth WW1 committee volunteers have been carrying out a research project to find out about the men, who are listed as dying during the Great War from Harmondsworth on a First World War memorial inside St Mary's Church in High Street.
Mr Rumsey, chairman of the Friends group, said : “Harmondsworth Remembers is a tribute to the men and horses of World War One that has been organised voluntarily by residents. This event reflects the strength of our community who wanted to honour the men and horses from this area who gave their lives for us. We will remember them.”
At 2pm, a parade of men and horses marching from the entrance of Harmondsworth Village in High Street to Potters Field in Moor Lane will see mounted police officers, light cavalry, Indian horsemen representing the Sikh community and the 60,000 Sikhs who died fighting, Harmondsworth Fire Engine, Women’s land army and a salute by the Lord-Lieutenant of London.
To date the event has raised more than £400,000 for local and national charities and it returns on July 20 to the Middlesex Show Ground, in Park Road.
As well as the hundreds of vintage and club cars, there will be a live music stage for the first time, which will provide entertainment for visitors while they grab some grub in the food village, where there is also a licensed bar.
The show opens at 10am. Entry is free for children under 14 if accompanied by an adult. Tickets for senior citizens cost £5, and £10 for adults.
All profits from the show will be used to fund local and international charities. Last year’s event raised a staggering £35,000.
If after all that fun you fancy a good old-fashioned sing-along, why not head to the Beck Theatre in Grange Road, Hayes as singer Lee Mead comes to town.
The winner of BBC1's 2007 Any Dream Will Do musical theatre competition will perform a new set of songs in the acoustic-style show on Sunday, July 20.
