A plethora of stalls promoting various charities and selling food and drink will also be provided by various Islington charities and organisations.

Pat Tuson, joint organiser of the event, said: “This really is something that the whole community looks forward to. Even people who have moved away from Islington come back just for the festival to re-unite with old friends and get introduced to new ones. It’s a fantastic day enjoyed by the whole family.”
