THE HAM&HIGH is appealing for acoustic music artists to perform at a festival to raise money for the Swiss Cottage special school.
Tufnell Park-based artist Vashti Gleave and her band will be among the acts taking part in the second Ham&High Acoustic Music Showcase at the Perfect Day Festival in Avenue Road on September 13.
The festival is organised byneighbours of the school, who decided to take community needs into their own hands and help raise the �120,000 shortfall in the school's government and council funding for 2010.
This is the first time the acoustic showcase has featured as part of the festival, which will be opened by Belsize Park resident Helena Bonham Carter.
