The mini festival at Battler’s Green Farm is tomorrow (5 September) and we hear there are still a few tickets left. The line-up looks great. Confirmed artists, performing on three stages, include: Pop Idol runner-up Gareth Gates, rock ‘n’ roll band Dixie, Kingsland Road singer Joe Conaboy and Ben Thapa from G4. The full list is here. Tickets for the day are £21.40 for adults, £11 for kids (children under 5 are free). Buy online here. Better still, the weather forecast isn’t too bad. No rain at least!
News this week that Yavneh College in Borehamwood has won approval for the construction of a junior school next door to the existing secondary school – a project that began as a conventional bid for local authority support but concludes as a Free School bid. The full story’s in the JC. In linked news, the release of the latest list of approvals confirms what we’d already been told back in April – that Harperbury has not won approval, putting the start date for the school hoping to open in Harper Lane back to 2017 at the earliest.
