Big Time & NW7hub Summer Fair 

On the 23rd June, under a bright blue sky, the NW7hub and Big Time Academy hosted an outdoor showbiz Summer Fair. Students between 3 and 8 years old performed a mini show in the library for a packed room full of friends and family delighting us all with their poetry and dance routines. Outside, along with a hot dog and popcorn stand, there were beautifully crafted fairground stalls like ‘Hook a duck’ and ‘Grab a carrot’ with special guest appearances from Minnie Mouse, Elsa from Frozen and Buzz Lightyear! 

There was even the chance to practice an acceptance speech and get a selfie with a real Oscar especially donated for the event. Here’s NW7hub & Mill Hill Partnership Library Manager, Jennifer thanking her fans!

Huge thanks go to local businesses, Bob’s Cafe, Pizza Express, Bluebells and Mill Hill Wines  who supported our Raffle by donating some very special prizes. Thanks also go to Zoe Samuelson for her commitment and tireless work throughout.
