Crystal Palace Overground Festival announces its 2015 dates

Crystal Palace festivalThe Crystal Palace Overground Festival returns to Crystal Palace from Wednesday June 24 to Sunday June 28, offering fun for all.

Festival fringe events will take place on June 24 to 26, with the Westow Park main event on Sunday June 28.

The festival, now in its ninth year, goes from strength to strength, with Arts Council and Film London funding for the first time in 2014.

“The festival is supported by local businesses, community groups, artists and performers and of course, our wonderful volunteers,” Noreen Meehan, the festival director, said. “These are the people who make it happen and their input should be celebrated.

“For 2015, we hope to bring the festival back with a bang and are looking for sponsors, advertisers, stall-holders and volunteers to make it happen.

“Today, the festival is more important than ever, it’s one of the groups that keeps our community united. It’s also a wonderful way of meeting your neighbours and making new friends through volunteering.

“Local businesses get very positive exposure by supporting this much-loved festival and we have already signed up Crystal Palace-based Westow House, Amphlett Lissimore, iMove Estate Agents, Words & Pictures and Martin & Co Estate Agents as platinum sponsors for the Westow Park event and South of the River as a Silver sponsor.
