Temperatures reach 30 degrees as Regent Street welcomes the first Summer Streets


We kicked off the first day of Summer Streets in style with a day of play and activities. Toddlers and their parents set out on a treasure hunt to discover some hidden gems on Regent Street with a camera meanwhile a troupe of acrobats entertained crowds on the street and Harry's Band played live jazz on Regent Street and Maddox Street. Third space gym offered a free Zumba class and Silver Ghosts seven piece swing band also encouraged dancing, with 50 jiving couples taking to the street to dance. Later in the day, a mass hula demonstration involving over 100 professional hula hoopers attracted crowds and people were also welcomed to join in a live hula demonstration, showing off their own hula hooping skills.

As well as enjoying the various activities throughout the day, people were also invited to sample various gastronomic treats provided by Strada and La Fornata.
