Multi-million pound sportswear firm Adidas has backtracked on a plan to stage a 21-day PR event in Finsbury Park next month.

We are aware that there were objections raised about the commercial nature of the event, and the scale of the disruption which would have been caused to both park users and those living nearby.

Haringey Council event officer Thema Channer said ‘The organisers have secured alternative space.’  She added ‘There were some concerns raised regarding the type of event that was being held.  Just to clarify, our Outdoor Events Policy does not state that we will not hold commercial/promotional events’.
