Come along to this fabulous Christmas gifts market at Kiss the Sky from 11am to 4pm. 23rd and 30th November, 7th and 14th December. Lots of original and hand made goodies by selected local makers, with jewellery, illustrations, vegan-friendly skincare and lots, lots more. There’s a bar too! The market is a not-for-profit collective.
Local musician Fred Deakin of Lemon Jelly has a new sci-fi concept album out called The Lasters. The Dystopian tale of Earth’s final family and their dramatic flight features Fred himself and a cast of singers and musicians. Deakin has held album ‘listening parties’ in Hornsey – and The Lasters is to tour next year – dates to come.
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.
