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.
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
