All the fun of the Festival!

What delights can we look forward to at the first Palmers Green Festival since 2019, which will be held on Sunday coming, when the forecast is warm but not too hot, sunny but with some cloud, and not too windy?

A festival for the ears on Sunday

30 August 2023

As always, there will be live music and a DJ at the Bandstand during Sunday's Palmers Green Festival.

Hurry to the Hinterlands for a day of fun and learning

24 August 2023

Today, between 10am and 8pm, there will be fun for the whole family in the borough's 'hinterlands' - along the Lea Navigation towpath. Explore an area that was once an important part of London's industry and a transport artery. It's still both of these to an extent, but it's also taken on a vital role in providing a cooling and calming strip bisecting the capital's ever hotter 'heat island'. All free, courtesy of the Canal and Rivers Trust and Enfield Climate Action Forum.

03 May 2023

One month until the festivals season starts in Broomfield Park. This year's Summer Festival follows the same successful formula as last year's - something for all ages and tastes: a mixture of live music, open-air theatre and musicals and fine dining under the apple trees.
