Edition 20 of the Hampstead Village Voice is [still] OUT NOW!
"Required breakfast reading is the latest issue of Hampstead’s revered satirical rag, The Hampstead Village Voice."
- The New York Times (26/09/2013)
What's in edition 20?
The High Street Spy has a special report on dubious and unwanted sales practices on Hampstead High Street by a most un-Hampstead like outlet; there's an amusing, blow by blow account of Scamden Planning's questionable behaviour at the New End nurses' home development hearing; a special report by David Lewis on that dam pond situation; Red Szell considers the torturous side-effects of über-development; there's a centre-page spread on the new Hampstead Neighbourhood Forum. Meanwhile, Hampstonia opens a new embassy and consulate in Whampstead; there's a new Tescoholics Anonymous, 12 Step Program for those in need of it and Klaus von Kunst completely ignores Hampstead's art scene. Bernardo Stella writes a very personal obitury for his old friend, Peter O'Toole and has his latest play reviewed (Ed. No, not Peter's, Bernardo's - obviously). Local musicians, Lisa Stansfield and Mike McEvoy's albums are reviewed. There's an extended Pub Watch featuring The Stag, Ye Olde White Bear and The Horse & Groom and our favourite not so local paper get's a minor roasting on a page called simply Ham & Eggs.
