On Saturday 23 July we celebrated Illuminate Freedom‘s First Birthday, and what a celebration!
Photo 1: Some of the Birthday Gang relaxing in the sun, bright green grass and trees all around, colourful balloons and a number 1 shaped pink balloon floating in the air
We had an amazing afternoon in sunny Kensington Gardens, with lovely company, delicious food and drink, laughter, music, water pistol fights and obviously lots of dancing!

Louise led a great Dance in the Park session, and lots of people (including some very enthusiastic children) joined in!
When we finally managed to pull ourselves away from a great time in the park, stuffed full of birthday cake, some courtesy of our friend Paloma Faith, the party then moved on to The Beachcomber, on Queensway.
We had some amazing cocktails, delicious soul food and again lots of dancing – that’s how we like to party!
Thank you so much to all the lovely people who joined us and contributed to making it such a wonderful birthday – and again a huge thank you to all of you who have been supporting Illuminate Freedom throughout our amazing first year. We can’t wait for the many years to come : )
