Every tree was once a seed and so the journey of Music by the Lake, Hadley woods Festival begins.
One of the deep realisations that I have come to in the Pandemic is that we never know what might happen tomorrow or even in the next moment. I knew this in my head, but living through Covid lockdowns, cancelled work, so much illness, fear and suffering around made me fully understand it. Which is why I have decided to act upon an idea that had been brewing in my mind and without delay start a music festival next to a beautiful lake in Barnet/Cockfosters. This combination of nature, music and community coming together is unique and has an X factor.
I feel very proud, 2023 is our third year running since the first concert and I am excited for our new collaboration with St. Paul’s, Hadley Wood Church.
This project would not be possible without Monken Hadley Commons Trust, HAPS Hadley Angling and Preservation Society and World Heart Beat Music Academy. My wholehearted thanks to all.
I wish for this dream to grow deep roots in the years to come.
