Still more to come from The Hop Poles Pub Bank Holiday festival
Poor weather failed to dampen the spirits of a pub hosting a four-day festival to raise money for charity.
Yesterday The Hop Poles Pub, in Baker Street, Enfield, was half-way through hosting the music festival to raise money for Macmillan cancer charity.
Punters still braved the bad weather to head down to the pub and organisers were still confident the rest of the festival would go well.
This evening there will be a charity auction with signed Tottenham Hotspur memorabilia and items from the world of music.
Landlady Anna Longland said: “So far everything has gone really well. The weather has held us back a bit, but because it’s over it’s a four-day festival it means we can still keep fund raising.
“We’ve got some great bands lined up. For us it is about making the pub a music venue again and giving some local bands the chance to perform live.
“The reason we chose the Macmillan cancer charity is because they do such fantastic work and then looked after some friends of mine.”
The pub hopes to raise more than £2,500 for the charity during the last two days of the festival which will continue today and tomorrow with live music starting from 1pm.
The event, which began on Friday, August 23, includes live music, bouncy castle and a hog roast and organisers hope the event will be an opportunity for local musicians to showcase their talent.
There is still more to come from the festival on Sunday before the four-day festival comes to an end on the evening of Bank Holiday Monday.
