Summer is now on its way, and what better way to celebrate the summer solstice than to get together with your local community and celebrate! For the fourth year running, on Saturday 23 June, the Friends of St James Square are organising Midsummer Muswell, an annual street festival that celebrates all that is special about our community and showcases our local talent and organisations, all wrapped up in a fun day out.

So for those of you who haven’t joined in before, what can you expect? At 1.00pm sharp proceedings will be opened by Muswell Hill Brass Band and the outdoor stage will swing into action, hosting local bands, as well as performances by the talented kids from local performing academies. It is also your chance to dance in the street with friends and neighbours and just generally have a good time.

The market this year has been organised by Vibe Market – a chance to buy unique items, and food and drink to keep your energy levels up throughout the afternoon. Community groups including Muswell Hill and Fortis Green Association and the Muswell Hill Sustainability Group will be present to introduce you to their work.

New this year is the opportunity to join in with the making of Muswell Hill’s first community mosaic sculpture. Young or old, we need your help to create this new artwork – pop into St James’ Church on the day to get involved. Other events in the church to keep you entertained include a bouncy castle, face painting, parachuting teddies.

So let’s all get together and make this year’s Midsummer Muswell bigger and better than ever before. It’s a brilliant opportunity to get to know your neighbours and to find out more about the array of local businesses and activities available on our doorstep. All are welcome, whether you live near or far.
