The festival takes place around Crouch End. Across the road from the Clock Tower is the main festival hub – Hornsey Town Hall, where we hold many of the events. There are art shows in both PLY gallery in Hornsey Town Hall, and in Hornsey Library (upstairs in the Original Gallery).
Crouch End Festival doesn’t just happen in the main square though. Check out the small, independent coffee shops, bars, restaurants and shops which host music, kids’ theatre, yoga, poetry readings… you name it. Oh and… back by popular demand is Red Herring, the festival’s compulsive Treasure Hunt game, which will have you tearing around Crouch End looking in all the shop windows for something that doesn’t look quite right…

planning your day
There’s a Day by Day section on the site. You can search by type of event, venue and by day and time.
We distribute Crouch End Festival programmes in early June, containing a handy map and a daily programme of events. Always check the website for extra events and last-minute additions. Check our site regularly, as new events tend to be uploaded on a daily basis, and please sign up to our Twitter account.
Have a great time – and please send us your photos and links to any videos you’d like to share. #crouchendfest
explore and discover!
Events and exhibitions can happen in some of the oddest places – we even held an art show in a butcher’s shop. Many pubs and cafes host live music. It’s mostly free
Because it’s a not-for-profit community arts festival, now the UK’s biggest, most events are free (some are ticketed to cover cost). So do please be generous and make a donation when you can as we rely on sponsorship and donations from locals and all our festival team are volunteers.
