Summer events at Hornsey Town Hall

Publication date: Tuesday 1 May 2012

Crouch End is set for a summer of culture following efforts by Haringey Council and the Hornsey Town Hall Creative Trust to bring forward a series of events.

Theatre, dance, art and music are on the cards in a programme of community activities which will help put the Town Hall on the map as a vibrant arts venue.

Summer activities include:

  • The Crouch End Festival Saturday stage on the Town Hall forecourt
  • A free art exhibition in the Town Hall commissioned by internationally-renowned art project organisers Artangel
  • A Crouch End Big Dance event, bringing together local people for dance rehearsals and a performance in the Town Hall Square
  • A Walk Cycle Reward event to encourage more people to ditch their cars and travel by foot or on two wheels

Liz Sich, Chair of the Hornsey Town Hall Creative Trust, said:

We’re delighted that both Hornsey Town Hall and the Town Hall Square will come alive this summer, giving people a taste of what’s to come.

Let’s hope for fine weather and what I am sure will be a series of really successful and enjoyable events for everyone involved.

Cllr Joe Goldberg, Cabinet Member for Finance and Sustainability, said:

We’ve said many times how much we want to see Hornsey Town Hall and the Town Hall Square revitalised as the cultural heart of Crouch End, and this summer’s events will really help to kick start that.

These events are a chance for the community to come together, enjoy culture on their doorstep and celebrate the history and the future of Hornsey Town Hall.

  • The Town Hall and Square are still available for further interim uses ahead of the building being transferred to Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts. Anyone interested in holding an event should email hth@haringey.gov.uk
