You know you live in a nice area when a bunch of lovely locals give huge amounts of their time, so we can all get together and enjoy our little pocket of London, in the sunshine (hopefully)...
And that's exactly what Midsummer Muswell is all about. A festival up in Muswell Hill, building our community and celebrating our local area.
This is all about community - not only filled to the brim with events, performances and showcasing local talent - but here to promote and fundraise for Wave ('We’re All Valued Equally'), and The London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy.
Wave is a local charity, founded by parents of St James Church in Muswell Hill. They are actively building an inclusive local community, where EVERYONE is valued and "can meet, socialise, work and live together." They are here to change an attitude towards disabilities and create an environment where everyone is welcome... running clubs, groups and events with St James Church.
The London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy is a Muswell Hill charity (an operating name for The Peter Rigby Trust). They are an independent school for children with Cerebral Palsy, from birth to 14 years old, offering specialised Education, support and services for parents and their children.
Midsummer Muswell is a celebration of our local community. The day is filled with music, dancing, comedy, competitions, food & drinks stalls, 'taster' classes and workshops... plus, a treasure hunt (and everyone loves a treasure hunt!).
(By the way, if you fancy the taster classes or joining a Mosaic workshop you must book in advance. Just click here for the classes or here for the workshop... get booking!).
As you can tell, I am a big fan of this whole thing and I'm really thankful for the efforts of the Muswelllife team who make this happen.
So... you can imagine how chuffed and totally flattered I was when they asked if I could design a version of the Muswell Hill bag for them. Of course!
On the day, 100 one-off Muswell Hill bags will be handed out. These bags have been sponsored by Layzells Solicitors and have some local info inside too. Get them quick - 100 will quickly disappear.
Plus, inside is an offer for the big Muswell Hill bag! ... you can be 'toted' on both arms with Muswell Hill baggage! ;)
See you there Muswell Hill-ians! xx
