About the Highgate Festival

The Highgate Neighbourhood Forum is a community-led organisation that works to make Highgate a vibrant place to live and work.

In July 2017, Highgate residents voted to adopt our community-led neighbourhood plan. The plan sets out to address the challenges – some common to all London areas, some unique – that Highgate faces today.

Our vision is a Highgate with a strong sense of community that protects its unique character and heritage while embracing fresh ideas and beneficial change.

The Highgate Festival aims to bring that ambition to life by celebrating everything we love about Highgate – including its arts, culture and heritage – and pointing the way towards the Highgate we want to become.

With more 70 events supported by numerous individuals, businesses and organisations, highlights this year include a full day of live music, shows presented by locals on Boogaloo Radio, young musicians and singers playing mini-concerts at various venues and numerous walks, talks and tours on anything from slavery and radical thinking to our great trees and pubs.

The Highgate Festival is organised with the a team of locals, supported by Highgate Neighbourhood Forum and Highgate School, and kindly sponsored by the Ham and High.
