The local businesses want to deliver it's first ever Wood Green Festival in July - to support the "buy local" campaign, and to showcase local creativity through its cultural quarter resident business

Haringey Delivery stage

pledged of £18,813

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

It will be a day of fun, and entertainment that local residents and businesses can be part of. The day will coincide with Independents day to help raise the profile of local independents and the hidden gems that make Wood Green a thriving and unique town centre. The festival will take place on Saturday 9th July 2016. The extent of the activities will be dependent on funds available. We will be working with the Chocolate factory to host a pop-up market selling their unique wares. We will also be looking to commission them to produce personalised mugs etc with the Love Wood Green Logo. We will also use local talent to play music and provide sports demos and keep fit demos e.g. Zumba. The day will raise the profile of Wood Green and it's vibrancy.

What we'll deliver:

  • Commision Studio 306 social enterprise to provide mugs etc for Wood Green
  • Commission artists from the Chocolate Factory to provide music, entertainment and Art
  • Commission local musicians to participate
  • Provide banners and marketing material to raise the awareness of the festival
  • Support local entrepreneurs by providing gazebos for regular pop up market

Why it's a great idea:

Because this is being driven by the businesses themselves, who have an invested interested and want to raise the profile of the area by making it a place to shop, drink, and become a community hub. We will be sourcing local volunteers to help ou ton the day and will endorse this so that they can use it as a valuable evidence of experience for the future

Steps to get it done:

  • Marketing and Promoting event
  • Comission Art and ceramics with the Wood Green branding
  • Commision children's activites for the day
  • Commission Music activites for the day
  • Risk Assessment and Security of area

Local businesses will also be providing their own entertainment to create a buzz in the area eg Metro Man from MetroBank.
