The annual street festival was set up to showcase the area, and people’s talents in 2014.

The teddies “parachuting” from the roof was part of last year’s event, and all proceeds will go to the church’s Raise the Roof appeal.

Hundreds of people have turned out for the event in recent years, and with the weather set to be sunny – crowds could come out again.

The Muswell Hill Brass Band will get the event underway at around 1pm, and bands from the ara will provide live music all afternoon from the stage.

Muswell Hill and Fortis Green Association, as well as the Muswell Hill Sustainability Group will be on hand to talk to residents about their work.

There will also be community stalls, a bouncy castle, face painting and a community café.

The festival will be held at St James’ Square, in front of the Everyman Cinema until 5pm.

Tracey Tommasini, who is helping organise the festival said: “Let’s get togetehr and make Midsummer Muswell bigger and better than before.

“It’s a brilliant opportunity to get to know your neighbours and to find out more about the array of local businesses and activities available on our doorstep”
