Stroud Green Festival Sep-Oct 2021

Stroud Green Festival: September - October 2021 

Welcome to Stroud Green Festival 2021: North London’s quirkiest and friendliest festival, where sometimes music and theatre collide. This year, as we edge out of lockdown, we’re moving from the usual 3 weekends in June and holding two mini festivals in early September and late October, as well as a pre-festival event in July.

“utterly thrilling performances”
“Stroud Green Festival’s concert/plays are on another plane to other stuff out there”

We don’t like categories but we cover a range of acoustic music including classical, jazz, folk, world and early music – and combinations of these.

“same quality as the Barbican – but cheaper & on your doorstep"
