As this is the last festival before Hornsey Town Hall closes for renovation, Crouch End Festival is marking the occasion and celebrating the building's long history with a series of events - illustrated talks, workshops and a ceremony of celebration.
The first event in a way is the most fascinating - The Evolution of Hornsey Town Hall - an illustrated talk by Steve Amor with amazing material and rarely seen archive photos of the building of the Town Hall in the 30s. On Sat 9th June 11 am-1pm in the Town Hall Council Chamber.
There is also an interesting walk-in project to record memories of anyone who has worked in the building, visited or simply gone along to one of the thousands of public events that have been held in the Assembly Hall over the eighty-five years history of the building.
Also recommended is Sean Azzopardi's talk - he is very talented and funny speaker and is about to publish is graphic novel "The Voice of the Hall".
