The very first event was a huge success with over 10,000 people enjoying the sights and sounds.
The morning started out with an uplifting set from Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir. Robert Elms led discussions with Giles Peterson, Tom Dixon and Wayne Hemingway on all things design. The House of Fairy tales kept the kids entertained with a series of storytelling workshops and Swing Patrol lead dance classes. Charity Shop DJ taught families to DJ - not to mention all the additional fun activities which happened throughout the day. As the sun set on the fete, Giles Peterson played soul, jazz and dance vinyl to an ecstatic crowd.
