Whitton's St George's Day parade returned with a roar, as dozens of classic motorcycles joined the annual parade on Saturday (April 23).
Around 300 people took part in the traditional procession through the town centre, including a pearly king in a horse-drawn carriage, characters from The Wizard of Oz and plenty of revellers sporting the red and white of the English flag.
Some 4,500 spectators lined the streets as the Royal Military School of Music once again provided the beat, with this year's appearance proving particularly poignant amid plans to sell their historic base of Kneller Hall.
The celebrations continued after the parade with live music, children's rides and an array of market stalls for people to browse.
The annual festival was cancelled last year, but Vicky Young, who helped organise this year's event, said it was like it had never been away.
"There was a great turnout and it was fantastic to see so many different groups taking part in the parade," she told getwestlondon.
"People were delighted to see it back after two years and there was an amazing community atmosphere as usual."
The festival was organised by the Whitton Business Association and Richmond Council, with sponsorship from the Rugby Football Union.
