It was a fantastic festival this year, and Somers Town ended up in the Camden New Journal – not for the usual threats to our space.
The Crick’s Hannah Camm and Diana from the Somers Town History Club were featured. CSM students displayed their designs for market stalls that locals can use for free – (contact Somers Town Community Association) and there were 4 stages – Bengali, African, Cock and Indie, including locals Blues bank Mighty Caretakers, and Oh!Gunquit, and there were funfairs and many organisations.
And the History Club (tried to) revive the Pub pram race of old, (there not being that many pubs to get round…) If it wasn’t for the Pearly queens, the ‘Cock team’ would have won it. So it was the Pearlies wot won it. They shared the meal of four with chariot driver, Ben. The Cock team had the consolation prize of a bottle of Prosecco.
