The Laura Street Festival 2013 is a celebration of music, arts, culture, community and life, and everyone is warmly invited to join in.

Come along to Laura Street in Highgate Hill from 1pm on Sunday, November 24, for an amazing free festival of music, dance, poetry, roving performance, arts, workshops, presentations and children’s activities across multiple venues along the street.

In its third year, the Festival aims to foster community entertainment, engagement and mutual benefit for residents, organisers and Festival-goers. This not-for-profit event is totally volunteer-run and performed.

Guests can tap their toes to tunes, gain new knowledge and skills, get creative with arts and crafts, and relax with fellow Festival-goers at multiple venues along the street.

The Festival presents over 30 musicians and live acts, including poetry and parade. Handy folk are ready to share their skills at free workshops.

Local artists and photographers will be exhibiting their works.  Fest-goers can share their collective creativity by taking part in interactive art and craft spaces.

Tasty food and drinks (inc. vegan options) are available at retro prices.  Water is provided so bring a bottle.  A portion of vendors’ sales and donations to the Festival are gifted to charities.

Laura Street Festival is a drug-free, alcohol-free and tobacco-free event.

The Festival is a community event run by a handful of dedicated organisers and hosted by generous residents. It is a 100 % volunteer organised community festival, by and for the community. The performers contribute their talents for free to create an incredible day. To volunteer, contact the Festival.

Attendees can keep each other safe and happy by exercising respect, appreciation of diversity and awareness of others’ personal boundaries.

Residents of Laura Street and the Festival organisers encourage attendees to bring their love, laughter, sun protection, water and sense of adventure.

Walking, cycling or catching public transport to Laura Street Festival is recommended.  South Bank Bus/train Station is a 5 min walk away.
