The tenth annual Primrose Hill Festival and Dog Show will be held on Sunday, 19 May on Regent’s Park Road, in partnership with St Mary’s Youth Centre, championing their impactful work in the community.
Funds raised from the dog show go to St Mary’s, who will also have their own stall on Regent’s Park Road. Please take a minute to stop and chat to the team.
Karen Santi, organiser of the festival says: “As it’s our tenth anniversary we want to make it as much fun as we can and celebrate everything that is great about Primrose Hill. This summer we have had a revamp and will be introducing new food pop-ups and craft stalls. The Princess of Wales mobile bar will be serving special themed cocktails along with an old-fashioned fairground and a brand new roller disco and DJ”. Entertainment is being organised by local artist Collette Cooper – expect the line up to be special.
The Dog Show is organised by local dog-lovers and has become a highlight of the festival. Eileen Barnes from the Community Dogs says: “Our aim is to give St Mary’s Youth Centre the platform of the dog show to raise awareness and funds, whilst we celebrate the wonderful dogs of Primrose Hill”.
St Mary’s Youth Centre
The St Mary’s team are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, to provide individual youth support, reduce gang violence, help with mental health issues and hostility, and foster self-worth and communication. Marjorie Brown, vicar of St Mary’s says: “We are delighted to be part of the summer festival. St Mary’s has a rare, individual-focused approach to youth-work … No one is part of a ‘lost generation’. Every young person matters.”
