The 7th annual Cally Festival this Sunday “will be the best so far”

June 16, 2017

Road closure southside 2

One fantastic thing happens this weekend alongside all the Great Together events: the 7th annual Cally Festival, the pinnacle event to an all-year-around programme of improvement to our neighbourhood and high street.

Islington’s biggest street festival celebrates “The Cally” – a distinctive place with a strong sense of community and renewed optimism. The Festival shows that we are a community that’s pulling together.

On Sunday, the entire main road between Cally Bridge and Cally Pool will be closed and filled with 3 music stages, dancing, story-telling, numerous children’s activities, sports areas, arts and crafts and a large street market plus lots of food & drink. And about 8,000 people.

The weather forecast is looking sensational too: the hottest day of the year so far with clear sunshine and the temperature reaching 30 degrees in the mid afternoon. Bring sunblock!

It all kicks off at noon. There will be a short (very short) “civic” moment at around 4.10pm at the main stage when the Mayor will appear along with Cally Councillors and Leader of the Council.

Throughout the day your Cally Councillors will be “circulating” or at our stall opposite Bridgeman Road.
