HERE FILM FESTIVAL is about the diversity of interests, people and places in the suburbs of London. HERE is not in the West End, Southbank or Shoreditch. HERE in the suburbs we aren't the swanky super-rich, the celebrity glitterati or bearded hipsters. HERE is where the cinema creatives of London produce…Continue

This year, 2015 marks the centenary of one the best known illustrators you have probably never heard of… Yet anyone growing up in the 50s, 60s or 70s is likely to recognise the images of Robert Norton Ayton even if you do not know his name.

Thank you for the message, Richard. I moved to Wolves Lane in 2004 and I like Middleton Road. I accidentally walked into a street event there where I experienced great community spirit.
I'm afraid I told a small lie when I registered for the forum. I listed my address as Arundel Gardens in N21. In fact that was my last address back in 1969, after that I stayed at Truro road. I was a regular at Fishmongers Arms and Springfield Park Tavern. I now live in a village called Crowhurst, near Battle in East Sussex. I still have strong memories of the area having worked at Express Motors and a spell as Road Sweeper.
thanks for your message. I just moved to the area and want to learn more about it. Very exiting!
Thanks Richard. We moved here last summer and are just trying to take part in the community now we're a bit more settled.
Thanks Richard. Please could you email us the pictures from yesterday to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you Richard for your welcome, it is many years since I lived in the area, but it was the are of my teenage ramblings as you will see if you look at my website www.judydyble.com
I am currently in the middle of writing my biography and this area does feature in it!! I may have to ask people questons on here about it when my memory fails me :-)
Thanks for your welcome message!
I recently moved to Bowes Park and absolutely love the place, and the great community vibe here !
I am a singer-songwriter, musician and producer, and am looking forward to playing my first solo gig @ MUMS on Thursday August 20th, 8-10PM. It's a FREE GIG, YEAH!! And I hope some of you guys will be coming down to check out my music!
All the best, Andreas
