Library GARDEN PARTY 1st July 2-4pm

Keats Community Library Garden Party 1st July

A Great Day Out for all the Family

The Hampstead Summer Festival is now a firm fixture in north London’s social calendar.

The Festival opens with the Art Fair at Whitestone Pond and closes with the Big Fair in Heath Street, and in the middle we have the delightful Keats Community Library Garden Party, which this year will take place on July 1st.

Set on the lawns of Keats House it’s a lovely opportunity to enjoy the beautiful gardens whilst the children are entertained with rhyme-time, storytelling, face painting, arts and crafts, and a treasure hunt. 


This summer, the library has a special guest, Fabi Santiago, a local children’s author and illustrator whose book, Tiger in  a Tutu, was shortlisted for the Waterstone’s Children’s Book prize.  Fabi will be reading from her book, and drawing for the children on the spot.


For the adults there will be delicious scones and cake provided by Gail’s Bakery, as well as tea and coffee. And of course Keats House will be open for visits while the children’s fun all takes place on the lawn.

Entrance is £5 per child, adults free, and all proceeds go to the Hampstead Summer Festival’s three beneficiary charities.

Charity Beneficiaries

Run entirely by volunteers, lead by a small committee of dedicated locals passionate about showcasing all Hampstead has to offer, Hampstead Summer Festival raises much needed funds for three vitally important local charities – Age UK Camden’s Hampstead resource centre Henderson Court , Hampstead School of Art, and Keats Community Library. Last year the Festival raised over £30,000.  What a fabulous way to help these three lovely charities, while having a great day out.
