Award for Amanda Carrara
We are delighted to announce that one of the longest-serving directors of Crouch End Festival, Amanda Carrara, has been honoured with an UNSUNG WOMEN’S AWARD. This is for her tireless work for the local community and was part of International Women’s Day. Amanda has been with the festival, now in its 8th year, since the start, and has immersed herself in many events, from History to Drama. She’s also been a key figure in arranging the markets, and helped reinstate the Christmas Tree on the Green, after a 57-year absence.
