Summer fun sensation

Holloway Arts Festival, which is produced by Rowan Arts, stormed the streets from June 8-17 this year.

This was the ninth outing for this eye-popping riot of music, comedy, poetry, scintillating symposia, and outdoor events in local parks and a street festival - as well offering a peek into the steamy past of Ironmonger Row.
