Take part

This is YOUR community festival and we’d love you to be part of it.


We always looking for volunteers to help out in the planning and running of the festival as well as a whole army of helpers on the the day.
If you’re able to help out for an hour or two on the day – maybe selling raffle tickets, co-ordinating an area or stewarding – please drop usa line at:  volunteers@eastfinchleyfestival.org or click here to complete a volunteer form.


East Finchley Festival CIC is a completely independent non-profit organisation and receives no funding from Barnet Council or any other outside body. We rely on support from the local community and local businesses in the form of donations and sponsorship.


Our two stages showcase the best of local talent. Please be aware that we get huge numbers of applicants, and it is not possible to include everybody. Our stage bookings teams do their best to ensure that we feature a balanced variety of acts from the local area.

To be considered, please email mainstage@eastfinchleyfestival.org (bands)
or communitystage@eastfinchleyfestival.org (dance, performance art, community and children’s groups), including links* to your material and performances.

*Please do not attach files

Please note that we are a non-profit community festival and all performers are expected to give their time on a voluntary basis.

Stalls and vendors

We have over 80 stall pitches available for local crafters, makers, small traders and local community groups.
We also have a selection of hot and cold food pitches. Bookings open in February.

If you’d like to get involved but are not sure where you might fit in, please email our general enquiries email eastfinchleyfestival@gmail.com
