Statement on Lovebox and Citadel festivals in Gunnersbury Park.
Published: Tuesday, 24th July 2018
Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council, and Councillor Julian Bell, Leader of Ealing Council said: “The Lovebox and Citadel festivals are amongst the most popular events on the music calendar, not only in London, but across the country. Securing the rights to host these events at Gunnersbury Park puts the boroughs of Ealing and Hounslow on the cultural map and builds our credibility as a venue at the cutting edge of contemporary music and culture. Additionally, the estimated 100,000 people who visited Gunnersbury Park over the weekend provided a real boost to local businesses.
“Police have reported minimal issues with crime and anti-social behaviour for the festivals and noise levels were also within the agreed limits. Of course, there is always room for improvement and we will listen to residents’ concerns and ensure that any issues they experienced, including those relating to transport and litter, are taken into consideration for future events.”
