RBKC Summer of Love.  We wanted to share with you that the Council will be launching its ‘Kensington and Chelsea Summer of Love’ campaign this summer, and we would love to have you involved. Webpage coming soon! 

From the 21 June 2021 through until September.

Let us know about any large-scale events and/or activities that you’ll be running during the campaign period for inclusion in our timetable of events. Email parveen.devi@rbkc.gov.uk or myself. 

The SoL theme is 70s flower power inspired and will pack plenty of colour into our campaign materials.  As the campaign launches, we’ll be providing plenty of imagery and content for businesses to use to help promote the campaign

Activities already part of the Summer of Love will be: Kensington + Chelsea Festival, RBKC Libraries Creative Collective, Notting Hill Carnival, and many others.
