The nearest Crouch End Festival event to Harringay might well be the Festival Art Show- they have a private view tonight at 7pm (opposite Hornsey Police Station) and there's a local comic-maker at the Fish and Chip Shop next door - unmissable!

Saturday is the busiest day for Festival explorers - earliest is probably the Festival Tree Walk @10am - an hour-long walk looking at and learning more about the trees in all our streets, free and open to all. This part of Crouch End is full of Cherry Trees and it can be rewarding to be able to identify some of the hundreds of trees each one of us pass practically every day as we walk along our streets.

After the walk, time to join the 'coffee republic' that is Crouch End, after which the Town Hall Square will be ready for a visit (noon onwards).
