Where to find Eustontowner print issue 11 this autumn

Somers Town takes centre stage in our latest edition, along with the Wellcome Collection’s brand new gallery, a new all-vegan cafe and much more

The brand new print edition of Eustontowner is available from today throughout the area, and beyond.

Look out for the Pearly Kings and Queens gracing the cover (above), taken earlier this year when a heritage blue plaque was unveiled on the side of an unassuming block of flats just off Eversholt Street.

The history is surprising to many people – that London’s beloved Pearly King and Queen tradition originated in Somers Town, and not in the East End as usually assumed.

Street sweeper Henry Croft raised huge sums for the poor in the 1920s by dressing up in his suit covered in mother-of -pearl buttons.

He is just one of a cast of local characters that have steeped this neighbourhood with a unique social history over generations, people at the heart of the community spirit in a place where residents have endured a near-permanent state of upheaval.

Somers Town has never been glamorous, yet its slum housing attracted radical thinkers, each set on raising standards and improving the lives of locals.

In this issue, we hear about an idea for a museum to celebrate these stories of radical social change. It won’t be a stuffy place full of glass cabinets, but instead a hub of the community.

We also go boxing, visit the Wellcome Collection’s brand new gallery, eat at the area’s newest vegan and vege cafe and discover 10 facts about the Story Garden (now growing food behind the British Library) that you never knew.
