The N21 Festival was without question an amazing success.
There was a huge outpouring of support for the N21 Festival late-on, and whilst it made organising some of the events a little difficult, it was a great problem to have.
From the first day with the opening of The Festival on The Green, it was clear that it was going to be a good week. The crowds on The Green on the first Saturday, 16th June 2012 showed that the marketing had hit a chord, and people were out in numbers, despite it being only 10.00am. The Maypole dancing, tree planting and speeches by the deputy Mayor and David Burrowes MP added to the occasion.
Everyone we have met said that they enyoyed the events and particularly the Fancy Fair on Winchmore Hill Green on the 23rd June .
A huge thank-you to all those that supported the events and entered into the spirit of The N21 Festival. As far as future events are concerned , all you need to do is to sign up to the N21.net Newsletter here. We are not committing to anything at the time of writing, due to a number of reasons, so the best thing to do is to sign-up to the newsletter to keep abreast of any events that are coming up. We will be doing something.
In the meantime, we have asked all the organisers to write a review of their event so that we can put the event into context and to show the images and videos that we have captured or have been sent. Click on the links in the menu to see a review and images of the events organised for the N21 Festival week.
Thanks again for all your support - The N21 Festival oganisers.

Before the event
Thank-you for visiting The N21 Festival website.
The N21 Festival has been organised to celebrate the centenary of Henrietta Cresswells book, Winchmore Hill : Memories of a lost village, a unique record of Winchmore Hill as it turned from a small rural village into the suburb of London we know today.
Through the book we are trying to bring the community together to reduce barriers, encourage involvement and participation in local projects, to have fun and to raise money for local charities.
There are many aspects to The N21 Festival - Historical, Music, Art, Photography, Walks, Talks, Exhibitions and Competitions to name but a few.
There are also opportunities to become involved in The Festival by volunteering your time or expertise to the event.
There is a sincere effort to try to make the events as diverse and as wide ranging as possible to involve as many local people as possible. Have a browse around the site and see what you think.
It's your N21 Festival.
