Music Festivals are part of a range of events that take place in Finsbury Park each year – others include funfairs and family attractions, charity gatherings and fun runs. Events bring in vital income to help to fund new facilities and improvements as well as helping to ensure that Finsbury Park continues to be a popular destination and attracting new visitors to the area. Find out more about how events income is spent by reading the Finsbury Park Events - May 2016 newsletter (PDF, 16MB).
We work closely with event organisers, as well as the Finsbury Park Events Stakeholder Group, to ensure that these events take place smoothly and safely, with as little disruption to local people as possible.
Details of smaller events taking place in parks will be listed on our What’s On page. Further details of the events will be published on our website as they become available.
How event income has been invested in Finsbury Park
- £215,000 on revamping and modernising the ball courts. The sleek new courts now feature eight basketball hoops, a badminton court, three volleyball courts, two netball courts and outdoor table tennis facilities – all free to use
- £105,000 on safer and better lighting at the track and gym
- £50,000 on demolishing a disused pavilion which had attracted anti-social behaviour, clearing the way for us to open up public access to a currently closed section of New River
- New maintenance machinery, allowing for better grass restoration after the events, and security improvements to areas where equipment is stored
The Finsbury Park Events Stakeholder Group
The Finsbury Park Events Stakeholder Group is made up of park user groups and stakeholders, residents' associations, traders' groups, councillors and council officers from Haringey, Hackney and Islington Councils.
