Crouch End Community Arts Festival Friday 5th – Sunday 14th June 2015. We’re making plans

Watch this space. Behind the scenes we’re already making plans for the Crouch End Community Arts Festival 2015. We are now the UK’s biggest community arts festival with over 200 performers, plus 9 schools taking part, in over 80 venues. 

ClockFace ManThere will be some of your favourite performances and events to look forward to… and plenty of new stuff too. 
Do you have a creative talent or skill and would like to put on an event? Now’s the time to start thinking about where – there are loads of places in Crouch End and Hornsey you can use, we even had an art show in a butchers’ shop once! But start planning now before others nab that place you’ve had your eye on.
This website will be retired at the end of February, and a brand new, interactive Festival website will be unveiled, where you’ll be able to list your own event yourself, and start promoting it. 
Remember, we run it like the Edinburgh Festival, we don’t vet or restrict events, you do what you want, where you want.

The Crouch End Community Arts Festival is a community based project, run by volunteers and funded by local businesses and people, that celebrates local creativity and culture across the London Borough of Haringey.

It is now the UK’s biggest community arts festival with over 200 performers, plus 9 schools, hundreds or events, in over 80 venues.

It covers 15 different areas of creativity and performance.

It involves all ages, all abilities and seeks to encourage creative collaboration.

We run it along the same lines as the Edinburgh Festival – we don’t vet acts or restrict them. You do what you want, where you want.

It brings together community, creativity and commerce – the festival boost the local economy by bringing people into the area, helping local shops, cafes, restaurants and bars to thrive.

It is a not-for-profit organisation

The group also runs a number of other community based projects:

-       Crouch End Festival Christmas Market

-       Shop Local campaigns
