Four months to go before the biggest event in the PG calendar - the Palmers Green Festival.  This year the Festival will be back in Broomfield Park on 3rd September.

The 2017 Festival will look, feel and sound very similar to last year and the year before, but in its tenth year there will need to be some changes behind the scenes. The Festival is now so popular that the volunteer-run approach that has worked so well needs more professional - ie paid for - backup.

As before, Winkworth estate agents are providing sponsorship, but that still leaves costs of more than £7000.  Phillip Chard, the chief festival organiser, is looking for sponsorship from more local businesses, would like if possible to get help from a fundraiser and is also asking members of the public to make a small donation to help ensure that the event can go ahead.

Phillip's only asking for £1 each - so without any further ado, get over to the Palmers Green Festival website and click on the Donate button.
