Did you know that one Kentish Town backstreet celebrates being 200 years old this summer?
To mark the occasion, a bunch of Jeffreys Street residents, all clad in historic Regency costume, will be chucking a bit of a party (for themselves only, alas) on Saturday afternoon.
There’ll be egg and spoon races, afternoon tea and live folk music, including a set or two from K-Town’s legendary troubadour, Whiskey Mick (often to be found bouncing between the nearby Old Eagle, and still-quite-near Tapping The Admiral).
Hang on. Can’t-for-the-life-of-you think where Jeffreys Street actually is? Well, it’s the road opposite Quinn’s which acts as a useful cut-through to Royal College Street (remember there was once a famous Banksy on its corner, too).
And its unusual name refers to Elizabeth Jeffreys, the wife of 1st Earl of Camden, Charles Pratt. History on every corner then, in fact.
