THE annual Swiss Cottage festival was a raving success with more than 3,000 revellers heading to the open space on Saturday to enjoy some fun and games.
Offering everything from music, food and table football to free swimming, theatre and author talks, the festival proved popular with residents of all ages from across the borough.
Youngsters enjoyed face painting, hair platting and children's rides while the older generation enjoyed a sewing club and an over 50s show.
Swiss Cottage councillor Don Williams said: "It went very well and was the most successful festival to date. I want to thank all the sponsors whose efforts really paid off.

"I was run off my feet all day and I could barely walk the next day. We have never had such a big festival and people of all ages came along which was brilliant.
