Christopher Eccleston and Juliet Stevenson urge all to attend Highgate charity’s Pinknic festival

Actors Christopher Eccleston and Juliet Stevenson are urging as many people as possible to attend a pink-themed annual festival to raise money for a Highgate charity.

Bouncy castles, a champagne tea, live music and more will be on offer at Pinknic in the Park on Saturday at Waterlow Park in Highgate Village.

The festival is held every year to raise money for the Alexandra Wylie Tower Foundation (AWTF), which was set up in 2010 following the tragic death of 17-year-old Channing schoolgirl Alexandra Wylie from cancer.

Its patrons Mr Eccleston and Ms Stevenson posed for photographs on Tuesday to promote the event and encourage more people to come along from 12pm until 5pm.

Last year, thousands attended the popular festival.
