Local residents

We wish to thank local residents for their ongoing support of the Great Exhibition Road Festival, which has been taking place since 2019. 

In 2023, we had a fantastic response to the Festival and are pleased to announce that it is returning on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 June 2024.

We are requesting that Exhibition Road (between Cromwell Road and Prince Consort Road) be closed to traffic, during part of Friday 14 June, and then during the day on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 June with the road reopening overnight on Friday and Saturday evening. Car parking arrangements would change during that time as well. 

➜ Friday 14 June, 09.00–16.00
 Saturday 15 June, 07.00–20.00
➜ Sunday 16 June, 08.00–22.00

During the road closure period, residents within the closure area would continue to have pedestrian and vehicle access to their properties, supported by the security team onsite, as we did in previous years. 

We will keep this page updated as plans progress and details are finalised, with 
further operational information to follow in April. However in the meantime, if you have any queries or concerns, please email us at [email protected]. 

We are working closely with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) and Westminster City Council to ensure plans have minimal impact on residents, and visitors have a safe and enjoyable time.

We would like to thank you for your understanding and support and look forward to welcoming you to the 2024 Festival for another weekend exploring the extraordinary!
