Is this the first ever Arts Festival in Crouch End?

We think more people work in the Creative Industries in Crouch End than in practically any other part of London. Maybe this is what we can offer Haringey, which has a long history of celebrations, carnivals and festivals.

Talented and professional local people banding together can highlight, celebrate and re-define the contribution that a local Arts Festival can make - an inspiring showcase for creativity, particularly for young people.

In the current economy the Arts have been hit hard everywhere, particularly in our schools and in the Arts experience. Our response is, by reviving and re-defining the Festival idea, to begin to raise the profile of Crouch End as London's 'Creative Village'. We are necessarily self-organising and self-funding.

The Festival opens on Friday May 4th this year (Bank Holiday Weekend) and runs for a week, paving the way for the Crouch End Open Studios, which opens on the 9th May.

Dunns Bakery is Crouch End's oldest shop
In the 1820's Robert Freeman came by hay wagon from Brackley, Northamptonshire to find work as a baker in South Grove, Highgate, founding his own bakers on Highgatge Hill in 1827.
"Dunns" was the first shop ever to be built in Crouch End. You can still see the Wheatsheaf symbol along with the date (1850) and the inital of it's builder (William Muddiman) on top of the building.

Robert Freeman's grandson was the first of the Freeman family to work in Dunns, in 1905. His son bought the Crouch End premises in 1946 and, in turn, his son Christopher Freeman became the fifth generation to join the family firm (in 1973). Christopher and his wife Christina are amongst Crouch End's longest-established residents. Dunns Bakery is Crouch End's most distinguished traditional family bakers, pioneers in sourcing most of their ingredients from other independent businesses in and around Crouch End.
