2019 marks 320 years of Chestnut Avenue!

Don’t miss this world-famous annual event in Bushy Park!

Since Victorian times, thousands of people have come to Bushy Park – traditionally on the Sunday closest to 11th May – to celebrate the chestnut blossoms when they are at their finest.

This year the event is back to its traditional date, so it’s on Sunday 12th May.

The famous Chestnut Sunday parade leaves Teddington Gate in Bushy Park at 12 noon and proceeds down Chestnut Avenue to Diana Fountain. There’s a children’s funfair plus lots of local community group stalls.

Do come to this famous annual local celebration. Why not bring a picnic? And don’t forget to come and say hello to us at the HWA stall.
