A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
2012 saw Palmers Green’s first Community Festival and we’re now very close to the second.
2013 will again see the huge Festival Day party in Broomfield Park on Sunday 1st September starting at noon. On top of that, Festival Week commences on Sunday 25th August with Broomfield Blues, arranged by the Vintage Blues Association, playing in the park bandstand from 1pm and runs through to Saturday 31st August with a family showing of Wizard of Oz arranged by Talkies Community Cinema in Burford URC at 6:30. Do book that one early to avoid disappointment via www.talkies.org.uk . There are other events in town during the week.
On Festival day itself we will have in excess of eighty stalls, a fun fare, the UK’s largest climbing wall, tricks from dogs and bees, free CD’s, live radio, a full days worth of musical performers, quite a few UK dance champions, a very large netball tournament, tennis, an Olympic Torch and more.
Amazingly it’s free and that’s because a lot of people and organisations have given so generously of their resources. The green collecting tins you will see are for Festival. Any surplus will be reinvested back into our community – such as with Talkies, one of the successes from Festival 2012’s surplus.
You can download a copy of the brochure from the Festival web site as well as keeping up to date with any late additions to the programme. www.palmersgreenfestival.org.uk
We’re very happy to hear from anyone who wishes to volunteer assistance for a few hours on the day. And if you can’t offer to help us on Festival Day for a period then please simply come along and enjoy it.
