Run in collaboration with The Abbey Centre and the Community Health Champions plus other local health and sports providers, the Health Trail programme will be jammed packed with great inclusive events for all ages.
The following weekend SouthWestFest will return to the streets of Westminster with pop-up performances in and across Belgravia, Victoria and Pimlico bringing some carnival, fiesta, and circus celebration back into the area.
