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. 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.

This year the Palmers Green Festival organisers are planning to use the former bowling green in Broomfield Park to stage "Classics on the Green" - an afternoon of local musicians playing classical music.
This innovation will depend on finding a local volunteer who would put together a line-up of locally based musicians. They would be supported by the Festival Team, but would be responsible for administering and stage managing on the day.
If you are local, have a few hours a month and are.......
