Trafalgar Square Festival

Located in the heart of Central London – or really the City of Westminster – Trafalgar Square is a vibrant meeting place. Always active with artists, tourists and activists the square features a giant fountain, Nelson’s Column surrounded by four giant lions.

For the next three weeks this is the site of the Trafalgar Square Festival. Stephen and I wandered down from the hotel, located just three blocks away, to view the activities. We spent quite a while watching Whose Hair Dares! by Osadia (Spain) a pair of makeup/hair artists creating fanciful looks for folks in the crowd.

Here are photos taken by me and Stephen. The girl in the red dress is the one in the chair having her hair and makeup created. Red, white and blue hair woman has a barbie on her head. Also some shots of the crowd.
