We are planning a programme of arts and cultural projects and events in 2019 and 2020 to mark the 150th anniversary of Finsbury Park, which opened as one of London’s ‘People’s Parks’ on 7th August 1869.
The first events are #Everything150, a contemporary archaeology project, running throughout the whole year, that everyone can join in, and the People's Platform, with live neighbourhood events on a portable stage in various locations on the first Sunday of each month. Watch out for details closer to the time.
Our first project, a year-round contemporary archeology project called #Everything150, has already started with a New Year's Day expedition. A second expedition took place on 3rd February, and a third on Sunday 3rd March.
Join us at Finsbury Gate at 11.30am on the first Sunday of each month to take part in the expeditions.
The first performances on the People's Platform portable stage took place on the afternoon of Sunday 3rd March at three locations.
Despite the inclement weather the wonderful BaggE sang at Finsbury Gate at 2.30pm; the African, Caribbean & Latin Community Drummers gave a magnificent performance at Station Place at 3.30pm; and Bell rounded up the performances at 325 Green Lanes at 4.30pm. More information about all performers can be found on the blog page.
