‘Festival Of The Senses’
Sunday, August 10th, 2008 from 12:00pm to 6:00pm
On Sunday, August 10th, 2008, Blackstock Road, N4 will hold a ‘Festival Of The Senses’ where you can come see, hear, taste and feel the delights of Blackstock Road. It will be a day where we hope locals will come along and celebrate this diverse and unique area and all it has to offer.
Blackstock Road businesses are trying to shake off the areas negative perception with the help of FinFuture. The street is alive with many different foods, drinks and shops that service local residents, visitors and commuters on a daily basis. This event is the start of many positive changes that we hope to make in an attempt to increase pride in the area.
Many steps have been taken to improve Blackstock Road since the raids. This festival is an opportunity to get people to come out, and meet the people in their area while they enjoy all the festival has to offer.
There will be live music, samples of food to try, stalls, a children’s area and fun for the whole family.
This is a street festival so the road will be closed from Rock Street to 52 Blackstock Road , which will allow people to walk freely without worrying about traffic.
This is an event that we want to use to promote positivity in the area and welcome all corners of the community to come together. Please come along and if you are not able to, please tell your family and friends to come down for a day we hope everyone will enjoy.
We know some people may have concerns about noise, litter, etc. but we will work together to make sure that we cause as little disturbance as we can for anyone worried about such an event. It’s just one day so please be supportive and help us make this an event we can all be proud of.
We have a short time to organise this festival and it is vital that we have your input so if you would like to get involved in helping us organise this, or if you want a stall or to perform, please contact Hannah Banjo with your details and we will contact you.
