Regent’s Park, Inner Circle, London NW1 4NT
Klezmer in the Park
It’s the post-school holiday pre-Autumn late burst of activities in the capital and early September has a good number of outdoor events making the most of the last of The Warm Days. Three of these are occurring on or near the Regent’s Canal this late summer Sunday – time it right & we should be able to take in all three. Yeah, right.
Anyway, the annual Klezmer music festival is well under way in Regent’s Park – organised by the Jewish Music Institute, and documented in a previous post. Regular attraction the Turbans have got everyone dancing around the bandstand, but it’s time to move on.
We take a somewhat convoluted route to the towpath, passing a happy looking wedding crowd en route, and all is very peaceful until we hit the mayhem that is Camden Lock of a weekend.
By the time we’ve negotiated our way back to the towpath to continue east (hello Granary Square) it’s evident that Callyfest is now a bit too far out of our way, which is a shame (though we do get there the following year).
