Residents learnt how to press their own apple juice using fruit gathered from their back garden, bake bread, and delved into the hidden history of Kilburn at the annual festival, organised by eco group Transition Kensal to Kilburn.

Among the highlights was a talk by local historian Ed Fordham who enlightened people about Kilburn’s rich history, and workshops on how to grow your own fruit and vegetables.

In the evening a traditional harvest feast was laid on, and folk group Cut a Shine performed to an appreciative crowd.
