More on the largest street festival in Camden…
This year, at a time of threat from HS2 and property development, the voices of Somers Town are on the map – literally – in an artwork of locals’ views – quotes taken from the film ‘somerstown wishes’. Look out for these posters in Ossulston Street. Filming is also taking place on the day.
The ‘art trail’ continues with a pop up installation in the street – ‘Somerstown: a space for us’ – a historical then and now perspective on our area. Look out for that in Chalton Street near Albertini’s café.
The café is hosting a ‘history café’ and showing a documentary on the slum clearance at 2pm.
This summer’s festival has great entertainment with a funfair, stalls, arts, and live music – from indie, rock, blues, country punk to Bengali, with an appearance by ex-Libertines Alan Wass in Lipstick Melodies. And in this world cup year, there’s a football event for the youth – to get over the pain of England losing.
Children also have a chance to express their wishes in a graffiti workshop; the results will then form a mural on Ossulston Street.
Come along – it’s a real street festival!
