Live Music acts this year include Mrs. H & the Sing-a-Long band for the kids, swing, jazz & big band vocalist Max Curto and the fabulous Bikini Beach Band closing the day. Plus, live DJ all day from the main stage.
The Amwell Street Fete was inspired by the support of the local community for the Amwell Street retailers during the sale of properties by Islington Council in 2007.
The fete provides a fun, entertaining, and interesting day out for the local community. Our aim is to work together to create pride in our area and foster a sense of community and continuing support for local/community retailers.
This year’s fete will have a Garden Party theme. There will be lots of food & drink including BBQ hosted by the George & Monkey pub, real Spanish paella, gourmet hot dogs, gelati, vegan & vegetarian food, strawberries & cream, cakes galore, Pimm’s and Prosecco plus local community stalls, arts & craft stalls and stalls from local businesses, charities & organisations with unique goods, tombola, plants & all-sorts. Plus, an opportunity to meet the Islington Mayor!
We also have three great competitions with fabulous prizes – our legendary Dog Show sponsored by Amwell Vets, a Summer Hat Parade with & chance to win a hair & make-up make-over, and the Amwell Street Bake-off. Make sure you register your loveable hound, gorgeous headwear and secret recipe cake by the day of the event. Entries for Raffles and Competitions on-line via our website and on the day. Top raffle prizes include £500 worth of pet care at Amwell Vet Practice and £500 of car service & repair at Browning’s Garage.
Amwell Street between Ingelbert St and River Street will be closed from 08:00 – 20:00 on the day to allow for the delivery, set-up, striking and removal of marquees, stalls etc. Ingelbert St will also be closed and traffic diversions will be in place.
