It’s always fun to have a roam round this annual exhibition, even if you have no intention of parting with any cash.

And with the weather as balmy as it currently is, an evening meander to its bucolic location near East Heath is all the more tempting. Heck, you could even have a swim afterwards.

Once again contemporary artworks from up-and-coming talent rub up alongside household names, with prices from a hundred quid upwards.

There are over 1,000 pieces, including figurative paintings by Barnet-based John Brown, Anne Gournay’s prints and works illustrating London life by Mychael Barratt.

And remember lovely white space Kentish Town gallery The Beardsmore, formerly on Prince Of Wales Road but now boarded up in an unsightly manner?

Well, the gallery now operates out of the founders’ home in NW5 and they have a stand if you want to swing by and check out their latest roster. As usual it includes Gospel Oak artist Russell Loughlan, who designed the masthead logos for all our London Belongs To Me titles such as Kentishtowner, Weekendr, Gasholder and Leytonstoner.

Thirsty? There’s naturally a cafe and wine bar to hang out at. So you can sit on the terrace, glass of fizz in hand, while you contemplate any future purchase (or simply the shimmery ponds opposite).
