UPDATE: The Mayor's office has put a spoiler on the 2014 edition of the planned flashmob, stating that: 'Different parts of the square will be closed for maintenance throughout the week, making it unsuitable and potentially unsafe for events.'

Not really well prepared as my wooly coat was covered with feathers! Having hard time to remove them but I have enjoyed it!
even the best efforts of westminister council could not stop this event takeing place and boy am i glad that it went ahead, hundreds of like minded people clutching pillows of all sizes and shapes beat the crap out of each other over 2 hours, feathers flew, cameras clicked, and tourists stood opened mouthed as they watched this mad event explode. like gladiators pajama clad people took on all opponents placed in there path and only stopped to remove the feathers from there mouths before jumping in again to defend the honor of there clan it was stress relief on a grand scale people pictured there bosses as they smashed an apponenent around the head and im sure they will go to work on monday a happier more content worker for doing so. another fab event on londons callender, a must not miss, make a note of this one for next year thats if its not banned that is well done to who ever run the day top top marks 5 star .

I mixed the sound of the movie "300" with my shots from the 2014 Pillow Fight Flashmob at Trafalgar Square in London. Enjoy!

Twas so much fun! Here's a small video from the even - https://vimeo.com/63539122
This was IMMENSE fun and went on for FAR longer than the allocated time of one hour (15:00-16:00). The ONLY reason I don't give it 5 stars is because it was a bit brutal. There were men getting a bit carried away and letting all their aggression out on the nearest pillow holder's head, even if that was a small woman. Girls were giving it what for too, but blood was drawn and perhaps people should've been more considerate. Apart from that, people were friendly, from ALL OVER THE WORLD, happy, laughing, having fun and playing like big kids. I'll definitely come next year, but will make a point to wear PROTECTIVE HEAD GEAR!
You guys should really have hired me. I participated in so many events from time out, but it has so many wrong information. I tweeted it to complain, but no body really cared. You guys want us to post comment, but I don't think you guys really read it. For example, the pillow fight shows 15:00-1:00 on the app, but it's like it finished at 6pm.
Its going to be a brilliant day again, please join the event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/601023463286671/
