Highgate arts fair celebrates 30 years at Lauderdale House
Fortune teller Madame Anita predicts a rosy future for the Lauderdale House arts and crafts fair - already in its 30th year.
Fair organiser and founder Elizabeth Nelson (right) celebrated the landmark anniversary at the Highgate venue off Waterlow Park on Bank Holiday Monday.
Originally started as a way to get the house noticed, the fair now attracts a growing number of arts and crafts including jewellery, clothes, pottery, children’s toys and textiles.
And this year’s fair also included entertainment from clown David Girt and a Cuban band.
Ms Nelson said: “I never expected the fair to continue for so long, but people keep coming and fresh and new ideas keep giving it momentum.
