What is Kentishtowner?

North London’s award-winning daily cultural guide. It was founded by broadsheet journalist Stephen Emms in 2010 and has built up a passionate and devoted following based mostly in central/north London.

We are a “good news” title and leave the hard stuff to other papers; instead we cover the arts, food, lifestyle, travel and people. We have broken stories locally and globally, gone from online to print – and the wider press has followed our every move, with features on us everywhere from the Sunday Times to a slot on primetime BBC1.

    Advertising policy

    Sometimes we may carry advertising content in our editorial stream. This is clearly labelled as ‘sponsored by’ or the editorial is marked by a boxed ‘special/reader offer.’ We use the words ‘special’ to mean the post has been supported by an advertiser. If the sponsor has produced the copy too we will always say.

    Competitions policy

    Competitions on Kentishtowner are marked ‘sponsored’ as highlighted above. Normally, we need to take an email address in order to notify winners. We will never share contact details with third parties (such as the company behind the competition) without opt-in permission. Nor will we store or use your details ourselves, other than to notify winners.
