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