Stroud Green Festival is a community event for people who are curious about music.
Much of the music played might be classified as classical or early music – and there is always a jazz and a folk event.
The programme is put together with the aim of offering something for everyone. Some events are free, others reasonably priced. Several are Family Friendly. The organisers say that "many are quirky or for the curious".
The Festival is run by a team of local volunteers, including Tamara Romanyk (fundraiser, medievalist and music lover), Marion Bettsworth (an organist who works for vocal ensemble The Sixteen) and Clare Norburn, who was Co-Artistic Director of the Brighton Early Music Festival for 15 years. It is now attended by 6000 people with several hundred thousand more hearing live broadcasts from the Festival on BBC Radio 3.
The main venue is Holy Trinity Church, Stroud Green and its Church Hall around the corner on Stapleton Hall Road but there are a number of other venues too.
Clare has already listed some of the events on HoL.
