Teddy bears will be cascading down from St James’ Church once again on Saturday, as part of the fourth annual Midsummer Muswell festival.
The annual street festival was set up to showcase the area, and people’s talents in 2014.
The teddies “parachuting” from the roof was part of last year’s event, and all proceeds will go to the church’s Raise the Roof appeal.
Hundreds of people have turned out for the event in recent years, and with the weather set to be sunny - crowds could come out again.
The Muswell Hill Brass Band will get the event underway at around 1pm, and bands from the ara will provide live music all afternoon from the stage.
