Notting Hill MayFestThe annual Notting Hill MayFest, formerly known as the St John's Festival after the 19th century parish church which acts as its centrepiece, brings together traditional musicians and contemporary artists to showcase their talents over a fortnight in one of London's dreamiest areas. Now in its twelfth year, the event galvanises a diverse community through a programme of music, art and family activities. The year's festival opens on 1st May with a free-entry recital by critically acclaimed organist Stephen Farr on the restored organ at the beautiful St John's Church, on Lansdowne Crescent behind Holland Park. There are further free lunchtime recitals at St Peter's Notting Hill every Monday and at St John's every Thursday throughout May, the Notting Hill May Fair on Saturday 9th May, tours of Portobello and Golborne markets and a Mayflower Parade setting out at 12noon from St John's on Saturday 30th May.
