CROUCH END FESTIVAL 2016 is underway. DATES June 10th to June 19th. WE’VE GOT PLENTY OF EXCITING EVENTS IN THE PIPELINE TO MAKE THIS YEAR’S FESTIVAL THE BIGGEST AND BEST YET!

Watch out for our LAUNCH PARTY in March (date to be revealed shortly) so you can get a taste of what’s in store over the festival. Members of the festival team who will be on hand to help advise you with your own event ideas, whether you’re a singer, a circus acrobat, an art teacher, actor… we’d love you to take part. Details and how to apply will be up on the website soon. So far we can reveal….

Saturday June 11th: come down to Hornsey Town Hall for a craft market with stalls selling goods made by local crafters, plus food and drink. We have the BIG STAGE set up for music and entertainment all day. Later on we have the ever-popular Zombie Walk through Crouch End, followed by an outdoor film during the evening (film to be confirmed shortly).

Sunday June 12th: Crouch End’s very own FOOD MARKET brought to you by local traders. The big stage turns into a mini festival with MUSIC DAY all day where you can hear a variety of musicians playing everything from jazz to country to hip-hop.

Saturday 18th: a special London Goes Latin community festival  packed with events, from a wake-you-up Zumbathon, to film screenings, children’s entertainment, talks, classes… through to a late-night Latin party.

Sunday 19th will be Family Day – with plenty of activities for you and children of all ages to enjoy.

Of course that’s just the stuff that the Crouch End Festival team organise. The rest is up to you. We hope you will get involved and organise an event during the weekend or during the week when things are a bit quieter. Pick from a huge number of local venues… from the Library to Earl Haig Hall to the numerous cafes and bars, to shops, recording studios… even phone boxes… hmm, time to get thinking, folks.

There are three ways you can get involved.

1. Contact us on this site if you’re a crafter or would like to run a food/drink stall… or if you’re a musician and would like to play on Music Day. We’ll be putting application forms onto the site soon, so check back with us shortly.

2. Organise your own event, be it music, a workshop, a play… whatever you like, at any time over the festival dates, at any of the local venues. Then load your event onto our site. We’ll be putting application forms onto the site soon, so check back with us shortly.

3. Just be there, come along and bring your friends and family.
