Where to find your July issue of Kentishtowner

How to spend the early summer in the neighbourhood and beyond, plus new openings in the area

Kentishtowner July 2018


o it’s finally here: the bit of the year where it never seems to get dark (not to mention the early mornings where it’s way too light). Just as well in our new issue we’ve cobbled a long list of eclectic diversions both close to home and beyond.

Not that it’s an especially strenuous affair: there’s plenty of lounging to be had, from laidback (and yet thought-provoking) art exhibitions that cost nada to a leisurely north London weekender which involves philosophers, calligraphy and ukulele lessons. Oh, and a museum dedicated to ice cream, as our cover image, above, shows.

There are free local one-dayers aplenty too, including the second outing of Patron’s joyous Fete De La Musique, which takes over Fortess Walk for a whole balmy Sunday, an all-new Highgate Festival and the return of vibrant Queen’s Crescent’s street party. Devour the full rundown of highlights over the coming month inside.

Elsewhere in the issue, we check out new openings in the area, including chic Middle Eastern grill Café Hampstead, the popular new French epicerie, bar and general Francophile hangout Authentique on Fortess Road, and Chalk Farm Road’s new Hong Kong-inspired streetfood joint Lan Kwai Fong. We also have a brief snoop around Archway, whose newly pedestrianised stretch is now home to the popular weekly farmer’s market.


Our countdown of summer things to do starts on p3. Pick up a free copy from one of the Londonwide outlets below.
