We can’t seem to escape white fluff this “spring”, but at least the flurries that flew in Trafalgar Square Sunday weren’t snow.

Hundreds of enthusiastic merrymakers armed with their finest soft weapons lined up for battle around some of London’s most famous monuments as part of International Pillow Fight Day.

Organised by the Urban Playground Movement, the pillow fights took place around the world for an afternoon of smacking, whopping and bashing complete strangers in the head.

The only two rules were that participants could not hit anyone with a camera or who didn’t have a pillow.

As a large crowd of tourists and passersby looked on, pillows burst and sent feathery explosions into the air. The ground and the sweaty, laughing flashmob of participants were covered in coats of feathers when they left the scene one hour after the fight began.

Urban Playground Movement describes itself as a "playful part of the larger public space movement". Now in its fifth year, the organisation hosted events in New York, Amsterdam, Zurich, Boston, Chicago, Hong Kong, Barcelona, São Paulo and Toronto.

Its website states: "Organising a massive pillow fight is perhaps the simplest of free events or interventions, but also one of the most rewarding”.
