This is it. Our fundraising campaign is now live on: www.crowdjustice.co.uk/case/save-finsbury-park/
We are raising money for a legal challenge to stop Haringey Council staging Wireless Festival and similar major events in our park – one of London’s most prized and historic green spaces. Last year’s Wireless Festival, which was held over two summer weekends, attracted crowds of around 50,000 per day and closed off nearly a third of the park to the public for weeks. It caused massive disruption, damage, excessive noise, and antisocial behaviour.
Finsbury Park is a public park that was formed by virtue of the Finsbury Park Act 1857; it is registered as a Grade II Historic Park and Garden and is also Metropolitan Open Land.
After reviewing the relevant legislation it is our view that Haringey Council does not have the power to hold Wireless Festival.
