The Cally Fest

I live in a very "vibrant" area in North London. I've lived here pretty much all my life; I know all the ins and outs and what have yous and the where nots to go after certain hours and so on. It's a giddy mix of million pound houses on one street and council estates on the next. Can you guess which is my flat?!

Can you tell which flat is mine?

Anyhoo, I stumbled across The Cally Fest via The Make Lounge. It's a day to close off a section of Caledonian Road, make merry and celebrate the regeneration of the area.

(Loving the branding) There is going to be music and arts and crafts, food and fashion, stuff for kids to do, stalls, street art, workshops and all sorts. I'm very excited about it, because I feel very strongly that our area is a good place to live and I'm looking forward to meeting more people from the surrounding community. And the lovely Anya from The Cally Fest team has informed me that I've been allocated a stall!

This will be my very first outing with my products so I am beyond excited. I really must get my skates on now and get cutting and sewing and cutting and sewing...


  1. I love london for stuff like that. I presume you are in the flat with all the brightly colour fabrics outside??? :-) Congrats on getting a stall. I'd come across to see you if I wasnt away down south that weekend. I have my first stall the weekend after you. Not in London though. Good luck with it. I came across this list the other day which I found quite useful

  2. Kt that's so kind of you to share your knowledge! What a brill list, it will help enormously. Good luck with your stall too - lets share how we get on :-)
