After a year without it due to the pandemic and an online event in 2020 – the community festival is back to real life on Saturday 1 October!

From 12pm at Filwood Community Centre and out on the Broadway, expect live music, food, stalls and a whole host of activities – all celebrating local talent, culture and community.

The live 2019 Knowle West Fest was headlined by Da Fucherman. Picture Lewis Campbell.

The festival was first launched in 2016 and became a popular annual event bringing people of all ages from across the area together.
