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.
