Highgate Festival

The Highgate Festival is an annual event celebrating the culture and life of the whole of Highgate through hosted events, exhibitions, walks and talks.

Started in 2018, it is sponsored by the Highgate Neighbourhood Forum, Highgate School and the Ham&High, with support from other local businesses. Highgate venues, community and religious groups, schools, churches and businesses participate by creating and hosting events.

Due to the Covid-19 lockdown, this year’s festival went virtual, with Zoom concerts and talks, video-based garden tours, and online art exhibitions. Read about the 2020 Highgate Festival in the Ham & High.
