Once again, we are delighted to be organising MidSummer Muswell Fest in Muswell Hill on 25th of June 2016 2pm-6pm, fundraiser for WAVE and LCCCP. StageTimeTables
From 2pm on Saturday 25th June 2015 Muswell Hill will be celebrating MidSummer (Muswell Hill style of course).
For a second year in a row Muswell Hill will be holding this fabulous, community-led festival that brings together fellow Muswell Hillians, their families, local traders and organisations. The festivities will be returning to St James Square and St James Church.
This year’s event has been put on by newly formed Friends of St James Square. They are a group of local ladies (and a token gent!) caring about All Things Muswell. They are well versed in putting on events and so far have given you MidSummer Muswell 2015, Geisterfest 2014 and 2015, Hillfield Park Street Parties, Tis is Season To be Jolly, Muswell Hill Festival in Cherry Tree Woods, help with Crouch End Festival, Vivian Stanshall Tribute – to name but a few.
Friends of St James Square is made up of secretary: Peter Thompson – barrister, Free Legal Advice at St James’s Church; and the board of directors: Deanna Bogdanovic owner and music producer at BonaFideStudio recording, postproduction and rehearsal studio, Lindsay Miller, Mel Pretorius and Jacqueline Goldenstein– of RedDesk VA, virtual assistance and social media.
Friends of St James’s Square is open to anyone who lives in the area and accepts our aims and priorities. Membership for a calendar year is only £25. (Email Peter Thompson our secretary: firstname.lastname@example.org)
Back to MidSummer Muswell, Deanna Bogdanovic of BonaFideStudio has to say this about the event: “Following on from the success of last year’s event, we want to show that the Muswell Hill community spirit is stronger than ever. We have therefore formed a company called Friends of St James Square and membership is open to everyone (more details on our website). Our aim is to give the neighbourhood a memorable family day out, hoping that this will be a date to look forward to in the Muswell Hill calendar for many years to come”.
Mel Pretorius of Red Desk: “With our strong team of volunteers we are hoping to bring more events on St James’s Square making it a Muswell Hill hub for arts, traders and families.”
MidSummer Muswell Hill Events:
From 2-6pm, the outside stage in St James Square will host music, dancers, a fashion show, quiz and comedy.
St James Square will also be alive with pop-up stalls, tasty food and drink, competitive events, as well as a treasure hunt, games and stalls manned by local organisations and charities.
Meanwhile over at St James Church, there will be face painters, a bouncy castle, bands, gymnastics, choirs, an art exhibition plus more games and entertainment.
The event will also act as a fundraiser for:
WAVE (We Are all Valued Equally) at St James Church, an outreach programme for young adults with learning difficulties.
LCCCP (London Centre for Cerebral Palsy).
We are adding more to our line up as we draw closer to the date.
Finally, a big thank you to sponsors: Tatlers (Outside Stage), Rose & Mary and Planet Organic (Gold), MEB the Motor Centre & Bill’s (Silver).
