East Finchley Festival update

Festival date in the diary
The organisers of the annual festival are pleased to announce that the 2013 East Finchley Festival will be held on Sunday 23 June in Cherry Tree Wood. As ever, there will be the usual mix of stalls, live entertainment and food & drink. The Festival starts at 12pm and finishes at 6pm and the organisers are hoping for a massive turn out this year, and have their fingers are crossed that we have fine weather.

East Finchley Has Talent
In the build up to the festival, the organisers are holding a "Battle of the Bands" on the 16th March at the East Finchley Constitutional Club between 2 and 8pm. We are looking for exceptional young local acts to come and perform their tunes with the chance of winning a coveted spot on the main stage of the Summer Festival. If you are interested or know of an act that might be, please contact: with details.

Festval stalls
Application forms for stallholders will go out  via email. If you are not on the regular database but are interested in a stall, please email for information.

The organisers of the festival have managed to keep it a free event for over 35 years. It has never been grant aided by Barnet Council and is run entirely by  local volunteers. On the day, at  least 50 volunteers are needed to sell raffle tickets, steward the event or help in the bar. If you can spare an hour during the day and make a contribution to the success of the festival, ring 07983 360 834 or email the same address:
