What with general election fatigue (not to mention the news generally) weighing heavily upon our shoulders, in this issue we engage in some positive thinking – and take a look at 22 diverse things to do around the area in this early part of summer.
It all starts on the first weekend in June with a melting pot of big local bashes, as Kentish Fleet Festival, Alma Street Fair and the Camden Rocks live music all-dayer collide in one sticky, hedonistic mess.
There are also food festivals, open-air plays, and a slew of decent arts and cultural happenings. Not to mention more food arrivals in the scrubbed-up quarter of Camden Market. We hope we can inspire you to check out at least a few of them.
Elsewhere we spend the night in one of the cute wooden lodges in ZSL London Zoo, and grill three local women about their successful (and imaginative) enterprises. We also bring you the latest developments on the High Line, the bucolic stretch that will connect Camden Town to King’s Cross along a stretch of former railway track. Sun’s out.
Pick up one from the shiny new unit outside Kentish Town station – or one of the many others across five postcodes below.
