VIDEO: Camden and Haringey celebrate 50th birthdays

Camden and Haringey councils have celebrated their 50th birthdays with special parties for residents.

Camden Council entertained residents with a free party for ticket winners at the Roundhouse, in Chalk Farm Road, Chalk Farm, on Monday.

On Saturday, thousands flocked to Haringey’s Bruce Castle Park, in Lordship Lane, Tottenham, for an all-day golden anniversary community festival.

There was face-painting, games and a bouncy castle to keep the children amused, as well as film screenings, cookery and dance workshops and live performances for the whole family.

Haringey mayor Cllr Jennifer Mann said: “It was fantastic to see so many people having fun and celebrating Haringey’s 50th birthday.”

At the Roundhouse, residents were treated to live music performances, DJs, and a cake baking competition, with free cake to eat afterwards, judged by Primrose Bakery.

There were also live oral histories of Camden.
