Welcome to Stroud Green Festival!
North London’s quirkiest and friendliest festival, where sometimes music and theatre collide.
“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"
Launch Weekend - 14 May 2022
Featuring Stroud Green Festival veteran organist Marion Bettsworth.
Please note Davies & Daughters were originally scheduled for 13 May but have been postponed to 31 May during MayFest.
MayFest - 26 - 31 May 2022
In 2022, we're excited to launch our first ever MayFest! We will be celebrating the month of the troubadour and the coming of Summer with a workshop and concert by The Telling, Stapleton Singers' first performance since lockdown, quirky Tudor/jazz/folk from Whistlebow and May songs accompanied by unusual instruments with Clare Norburn, Patricia Hammond & Matt Redman. Plus, the festival will be bookended by two Ukraine fundraising concerts: one involving a collaboration by a pool of brilliant local musicians on the 26th, and one by popular local folk trio Davies & Daughters on the 31st.
MainFest - 21 - 25 July + 8 Aug 2022
Then in July, we present the Main Festival consisting of '40s songs from Patricia Hammond & Matt Redman, Bach by Candlelight with Incantati, songs and stories of Mary Somerville from Electric Voice Theatre and two half concert/half plays by The Telling - the second being an extra post-festival event (8 Aug).
