St James Square will be alive with pop-up stalls, tasty food and drink, competitive events, a treasure hunt, games, and stalls manned by local organisations and charities.
There will be music, dancers, and even a fashion show at the June event.
At St James Church, there will be facepainters, a bouncy castle, bands, gymnastics, choirs and an art exhibition.
This year’s event has been put on by Friends of St James Square, a group of local ladies - and a token gent.
Organiser Deanna Bogdanovic said: “Following on from the success of last year’s event, we want to show that the Muswell Hill community spirit is stronger than ever.
“Our aim is to give the neighbourhood a memorable family day out, hoping that this will be a date to look forward to in the Muswell Hill calendar for many years to come.”
Organiser Mel Pretorius added: “With our strong team of voluntesers we are hoping to bring more events to St James’s Square, making it a Muswell Hill hub for arts, traders and families.”
The event will also act as a fundraiser for: WAVE (We Are all Valued Equally) at St James Church, an outreach programme for young adults with learning difficulties and the London Centre for Cerebral Palsy.
- The celebrations will take place from 2pm on June 25. See: muswellife.com
