Chiswick Business Park has the launched of Summer Live 2004, its summer events season. The season, which runs throughout the summer from May until September on the Events Square at Chiswick Business Park, will offer a wide array of activities, sports, games and live entertainment.

Summer Live will take place every Friday lunchtime, from 12.00 – 2.00pm, and will be open to both employees based within the Park and the wider Chiswick community. This is the third year of summer events at Chiswick Park and promises to offer an even wider selection of lunchtime activities.

Each event will feature live music, a barbeque from The Garden caterers, interactive games for group and individual participation and the “x” factor – which changes each week.   These events form a key part of the Chiswick Business Park lifestyle where the guests on the Park are actively encouraged to take a break and meet one another. 

The management of the companies also feel a direct benefit from their employees taking a break.  Much research has shown that productivity increases and stress levels fall if regular breaks are taken. The event series will be launched by Swing into Summer, which is centred around Oblivion, a brand new white knuckle ride that spins and twists. There will be street entertainers on the Events Square and live music from The Swingers, led by Barney Dickinson, fresh from acclaimed musician Jamie Cullum’s latest tour.
