Congratulations to David Williamson (Friends of Broomfield Park), Clare Donovan (Cooking Champions), Cara McDonald (Tatty Bits) and the very many more people who worked hard to make the 2023 Palmers Green Festival such a success.

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. This year the music stage is being organised by Clare Donovan of the wonderful food charity Cooking Champions that is doing so much to feed hungry residents and to revive the once widespread art of home cooking.

What delights can we expect at this year's PG Festival?

Then on 3rd September - the return of the Big One - the Palmers Green Festival itself!
