Organisers of the Edmonton Summer Festival are hoping their festival can bring the whole borough together.

Three days of music, theatre and entertainment will end this evening at Pymmes Park, in Victoria Road, Edmonton.

Formerly known as the Spellbound Festival, which took place in Jubilee Park last year, this was the first festival to be held in the park since the days of the Edmonton Summer Theatre, in the 1970s and 80s.

Paul Everitt, chief organiser and manager of Millfield Arts Centre, told the Enfield Independent he hopes the three-day event can reignite community spirit in Edmonton and bring the borough together.

He said: “There has been a lot of bad news in Edmonton lately and we want people to know that this is not what it’s always like here.

“I think the people of Edmonton can surprise themselves by coming out and having a great time.”

As well as the plethora of cultural shows, a number of stalls ranging from bread businesses to free arts and crafts sessions were made available to anyone who came along.

The traditional fun fair was also in full swing with zorbing and boxing available for children.

Local talent such as Ellen Blane and Aleisha Lee performed during the weekend as well as urban music awards winner Omar performing today.

Mr Everitt added: “We want to bring back the roots of the Edmonton summer theatre and it’s great to see people coming out to enjoy the fabulous acts we have on show.

“We would love to see people coming from all over the borough to portray the beauty that this park in Edmonton has. There is a divide in this borough but we hope festivals like this can break that divide.

“There is so much talent and culture in Edmonton and we are celebrating that.”

Jennifer Wheeler, of Haselbury Road, said: “It’s great that everything is in the park this weekend because nothing really happens here.

“You always see a lot of the festivals in Enfield Town but its nice to have so many things to do and a lot of it is free of charge.”

Her son, Luke, said: “My favourite part of the day was zorb ball where we play football in these giant bubbles.”
