Journal 7th March, 2002 - By Liz Pippett
desperately needed to help organise The Muswell Hill Festival this
year - or it could be scaled down. That's the warning from
festival organisers, who say the festival has become such a popular
event that it'll need all hands on deck to make it work.
Liz Luxmore, spokeswoman for the festival said: "The festival has
become such a big thing, we need more help with it" "We would
also like to get children involved with stalls for them, but we need
people who can run them."
The Festival is pencilled in for July 14th, and is set to run from 2pm
to 8pm. As usual the focus of the event will be Fortis Green, and
attractions will include live entertainment and stalls.
Last year's event had two stages and 100 stalls promoting local crafts
people - but a power hitch caused the show to run overtime. Haringey
Council was preparing to pull the plug when O'Neill's pub in Muswell
Hill Broadway saved the day by offering to host the final act.
Mrs Luxmore said: "We expect a good turnout. The day has always been
very popular, which is why we need more help. We'll just have to hope
the weather is good."

in performing should call Liz Luxmore on 020 8444 0244
