Young people in Islington are inviting everyone to ‘OCCUPY’ Platform youth hub in Hornsey Road on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 April. This is a stunning new show that has been created, produced and presented by 13-19 year olds along with some of Islington’s best arts companies. Expect cutting edge art, electrifying music, eye-popping performance and inspiring spoken word!
