July 23, 2021 2:30 PM - 5:30 PM
About the festival:
We welcome you with open arms to the first Islington Festival of Music and Arts, which will take place at the end of July , in a celebration of music and the arts in Islington, North London. We were inspired by the enormous happiness and energy that many Londoners demonstrated last year, when we organised a series of chamber music concerts in private gardens and outside spaces in our local neighbourhood. We have spent the long winter months beavering away to present this 4-Day Festival of wonderful music for you to enjoy, and a few other events too!
We are proud to announce that we are presenting 15 events during the 4 days, including 11 concerts in beautiful and inspiring buildings throughout the Borough of Islington. There are 3 Series of concerts, always at the same time each day.
About the workshops:
There are 3 Workshops during the Festival, all taking place at the Meeting House. For string players, there is the opportunity to learn and experience the world of the Luthier. There will be 2 Drawing Classes: Figurative or Abstract Drawings Inspired by Music.
On the final afternoon of the Festival there will be an Art Market in the gardens of Christ Church Highbury. We have invited talented local artists and artisans to display their crafts and products in a wide range of stalls, enhancing the traditional and local feel of the Festival.
