The Whitecross Street Party is one of London’s fastest growing urban events, showcasing a range of street artists and local musicians, as well as community projects from around the Islington area.

The event is hosted by local charity City YMCA London, which has long demonstrated a commitment to the young people of Islington, especially those young people who have experienced homelessness.

Their hostel in Errol Street off Whitecross Street has helped thousands of vulnerable young people get their lives back on track. Currently closed for redevelopment, the new hostel will open in Spring 2019 and set a new standard for homeless accommodation in and beyond London.

The Drum, their youth intervention centre on Whitecross Street, will become the hub of the party on the day.
