In my opinion Enfield has been lost, this modern Enfield is no where near as good as it once was. I am so glad I lived when Enfield was a safe and happy town, with all of its history.
Hi, could you tell me if the Dugdale Centre's toilets are open? Thanks.
Hello, is there any Historians and or Ancestry buffs out there? I have this painting from www2 which has information on the back about the painter in Southgate, would love to find the direct family of the artist. (If you look at my FB wall, you will find more information on it)

In just six weeks' time my musical The Ghost of Sarah Haunting will be performed at The Dugdale Centre in Enfield, North London. As a taster for the show please have a listen to the extraordinary Abbie Middleton-Evans singing Morning Come Soon. We had a great recording session a couple of days ago, thanks in no small part to the talents of our sound engineer Perry Swain, who is also in the show. Thanks also to Stuart Rush for the wonderful orchestration. Keep an eye out for further recordings in the coming weeks and please come along to the show! You can find out more about the show by visiting the website. Details are at the end of the song.
You are warmly invited to Winchmore Hill Quakers' Open Garden on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 June from 2pm to 5pm.
Wonderful show today .. thank you all, so talented x😍😀
The London Bonnevilles are playing at the Made in Enfield Craft Market at the Dugdale Centre, Enfield Town on Sunday 24 March from 11am.
Came to see Ian Shaw and the Steve Taylor Trio last night. Wow, what a fabulous evening. The music was amazing, Ian was so funny and an excellent singer & alongside such talented musicians, it was a joy to listen to. The venue was perfect and the bar was very reasonably priced. The Dugdale has a very relaxed atmosphere with a perfect theatre for music, Ziggy’s rocks 🤘. Thank you to the Dugdale for this excellent venue, right on Enfield’s doorstep. With Andy Moore
