Leader of Hounslow Council, Cllr Shantanu Rajawat

Cllr Shantanu Rajawat, Leader of Hounslow Council said in response to the decision by Waterworks Events Ltd to proceed with a large festival in Gunnersbury Park on the weekend of the funeral of our late sovereign Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second:

“We are extremely disappointed in the decision of Waterworks Events Ltd to proceed with their planned multi-stage electronica festival in Gunnersbury Park during this period of mourning for the passing of our late Queen and Sovereign, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second.

“Hounslow Council has made representations in the strongest terms advising against this event proceeding. We are clear this massive multi-stage festival event is completely out of keeping with the mood of the nation at this time of grief.
