Dear Crouch End, there will not be a Christmas event this year. Building works make the staging of the traditional market and music impossible for 2019. this was always going to happen (ever had your roof done?) and while it’s a bit of a downer, it also means we’re just waiting for the next opportunity…

Just because there’s no xmas festival it doesn’t mean the team are resting on their laurels. We’re thinking of new ways to enhance Crouch End living and ways to embrace the level of creativity that exists in our London village. All we can say for now is… watch this space….


7th – 16th June 2019

What’s on?

Put on an event, volunteer to help... or just come along and enjoy the festival!
