In 1997, Collage Arts (formerly Haringey Arts Council) working in partnership with Haringey Council, community groups, The Metropolitan Police and local stakeholders, launched a community festival event in the heart of the Tottenham area. Taking place at Bruce Castle Park, the event proved to be an exciting new addition to the Borough calendar of leisure activities.
In 2000, to celebrate the Millennium, the plan to revise the spirit of Carnival was realised. This addition has proved to be a huge success, with estimated audiences for both events totalling over 50,000. The festival celebrated its 10th birthday in 2007. We, as a committee are committed to keeping the tradition alive for many years to come. This cannot be possible without the support of local business.
