June 2019


Following the recent announcement that the Lovebox and Citadel festivals will be taking place in Gunnersbury Park on 12, 13 and 14 July 2019, Gunnersbury Community Interest Company (CIC) hosted a series of evening public meetings, where people had the opportunity to meet the festival organisers and be kept informed on the latest event developments.

Public meeting events took place between February and June this year. The meetings were held at 18:00 and 20:00 in Gunnersbury Park Museum’s Rothschild Dining Room with each session running for up to 90 minutes.

These evening events were an opportunity for the public to engage with the festival organisers who presented updates on their event delivery plans. People were also able to ask the festival organisers questions at the end of their presentation.

These public engagement events were organised by Gunnersbury CIC to continue to ensure that residents and stakeholders are kept informed on the Lovebox and Citadel festivals. Gunnersbury CIC is working closely with the festival organiser MAMA Festivals and partners Ealing Council and London Borough of Hounslow to ensure both festivals are delivered successfully, with minimal disruption to the local community.

A dedicated community website can be accessed via www.loveboxandcitadelcommunity.com where updates on plans for the events and details of these public consultation meetings can be found.
