Stroud Green Festival is a community event for people who are curious about music.
Much of our music might be classified as classical or early music – and we always have a jazz and a folk event each year. But we’re more interested in open borders than boundaries – for some of our events, it is hard to tell where classical ends and folk starts.
There’s something for everyone, some events are free, others reasonably priced. Several are Family Friendly. And many are quirky or for the curious.
“unusual treats within walking distance”
“a rich and varied programme”
“The music is so good that it deserves a massive audience. It's great to have SGF on the doorstep.”
We love first-time attenders and hope to see you there.
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.
Our main venue is Holy Trinity Church, Stroud Green and its Church Hall around the corner on Stapleton Hall Road but we have a number of new venues this year too (see our venues page).
