The organiser of a music day is hoping to turn it into a mini-festival.

From the humble beginnings of a street party to an all-day music event at Forty Hall Farm, the Livestock festival has rapidly in just three years.

This Saturday marked the third Livestock with a plethora of bands playing until the late hours, with entertainment for children as well as a number of food stalls.

But organiser Leon Wilkin is hoping to take the event one step further and create a weekend festival in the borough.

He told the Enfield Independent: "The event is fantastic and started as a street party in Goat Lane with just a couple of people performing and now look at it, we have three stages with loads of talented local acts playing.

"It would be amazing to see this grow into an all weekend event next year."

All profits from the event will be going to Children in Need.

When asked why he chose the charity, Mr Wilkin said: "I think it is really important to help the children in this country and create better lives for people in the UK.

"We have so many amazing acts performing which has seen people from all ages come down to have a great day.

"We aren’t blowing our own trumpet but we believe this is the best day festival in North London."

Alison Blackett brought her son Michael to the event. She said: "Last year we had sheets and sheets of rain which was a shame but it the festival has really expanded this year and I think its an excellent platform for local acts to perform."
