History buffs and Sixties swingers! The City Living, Local Life-supported newsletter latest offering is out and the focus in on ’66.

While the year may have seen people dancing in the streets up and down England after Geoff Hurst’s hattrick, the people of North Kensington were also dancing to the beats of the first ever Notting Hill May Fayre.

Organised by the London Free School the Fayre would soon inspire the Notting Hill Carnival we know today, as well as the raft of Sixties and Seventies bands, magazines and movements that the Free School were involved in, from Pink Floyd to Hendrix.

So, sit back and grab Issue 17 here [pdf].
