I saw: old hippies, new hippies, punks, preppies, grandmothers, babes in arms, parents, wrinklies, men in tweeds, trombonists, anarchists, Star Wars fans, Star Trek fans, drummers, protesting dogs, sleeping babies, journalists, the UK’s only Green MP, and a Boris Johnson lookalike waving sorry to the passing crowd.

 

It was multi-sensory, glorious, peaceful, funny, generous, creative, warm, loud, joyful, and overwhelming…

 

… and I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.
