Pop Up Acts


In 2018 we had our first Pop-Up stage. It was so popular that we have decided to keep it as a part of the festival. The Pop-Up stage can be found in the boating lake zone, towards Aldermans Hill.



12:30-13:30pm Badra Bellydance

Samantha has been belly dancing since 2000 and teaching since 2003. She trained as a Bellydance teacher with the JWAAD (Josephine Wise Academy of Arabic Dance) and has taken classes with the top teachers & dancers from the UK, USA and Cairo such as Josephine Wise, Randa Kamal, Raqia Hassan, Aida Nour, Galit Mersand, Azzia, Kay Taylor and Princess Faharna to name but a few.

Her classes are welcoming, upbeat and fun, and are attended by ladies of all ages, shapes and abilities. With the combination of traditional Egyptian dance with modern & fusion, there is something for all. Don’t worry should you find yourself addicted to the sensual exotic moves and music of the Middle East! If not that then perhaps the wonderful sparkly fab outfits you can dress up in - what more could a girl want?

Bellydance is great for the body and the mind. It's a great way to tone, burn calories and mobilise all your joints so help with those aches and pains. Don’t let things get you down, come along to class and shimmy your stress away. When dancing, your body produces is own natural happy drug which can lift your spirits!

Now’s your chance to see what it’s all about.

Opening the music on the Bandstand earlier in the afternoon, we have such big expectations of this teenage brother and sister duo, currently studying at the Brit Schools, that we thought – why not see them twice! Even at a young age their track record is impressive and includes high profile venues and events such as the Jazz Cafe, St Lucia Jazz Festival, PwC’s Building Public Trust Awards, Women of the World Festival, Children in Need, BT Sports Relief Charity Ball and performing at the Royal Festival Hall with the London Community Gospel Choir. 

And now the Palmers Green Festival Pop-Up Stage! Don’t miss.

Dance is a major part of the Palmers Green Festival so we’re delighted to welcome Bollywood in 2019.  After a fantastic performance and linked beginners class at a local street party, Rakhee moves onto the nearby but even bigger Palmers Green Pop Up stage. Yet another festival inspired opportunity to see real dance talent and also wiggle your own body about.
