Angel Edmonton to receive £200k high street funding boost
The Mayor of London has awarded an Angel Edmonton project £200,000 to help invigorate the local high street, develop arts and culture and foster a much-needed night time economy.
The Fore Street For All community project, supported by Enfield Council is set to be the beneficiary of funding from the Mayor’s £4 million High Streets for All Challenge. High Streets for All aims to deliver enhanced public spaces and exciting new uses for underused high street buildings alongside London's diverse communities.
The announcement coincided with an inaugural evening of cultural pop-up events (9 December) hosted at a number of venues along Fore Street including Steel Pan music, live caricature with Amaechi Emmanuel Anolu, an exhibition by artist Tahira Tofa, screen-printing sessions, and more.
