When you think of Camden what springs to mind? Banksy knock offs at the market? Goths? Amy Winehouse tribute acts? Dawdling groups of Spanish tourists? The stench of overcooked sweet and sour chicken? Drunk teenagers throwing up at 2am?

One More Cup of Coffee for the Road, One More Cup of Coffee 'Fore I Go

I love coffee; I need coffee. Coffee is my vice but as Lou Reed said 'Vice is a virtue and virtue is a vice' so that's good enough for me. As I writer, I spend a lot of time in coffee shops curating content. But if the vibes not right and the coffee is bad then this can sometimes be nigh impossible.

As a professional actor of 25 years, since being the first disabled actor to appear in a UK soap back in 1991, and the chair of the actor's union Equity's Deaf and Disabled Members Committee I know all too well just how high the standard of talent is within the disabled acting community.

Camden Businesses Will Celebrate HS1-2 Link Drop, But Our Work Continues

What is important now, and what we will continue to petition Government on, is that the uncertainty that has been blighting businesses in Camden is removed as soon as possible. The safeguarding of this section of the route has meant that businesses in Camden have been reluctant to invest or hire skilled staff.

Love London

London has so much to offer, you can party at night, browse markets in the day and everything in between. It wasn't until February last year when my boyfriend fulfilled a childhood dream of mine by taking me to New York that I realised how utterly in love I was with this city.

A Misconceived View of Gentrification

Alex's attack on "Shoreditchification" goes beyond the shores of Brick Lane, Hackney Road, Shoreditch High Street, Kingsland Road and surrounding areas. It's a real dig at what Londoners are all about. Get over it Alex, go and mingle with your gentrified buddies and chill out.

Camden Business Are an Example to the UK But They're Under Threat From HS2

HS2 Ltd wants to plough through the centre of Camden, taking over the bridges and shutting down businesses for years to create a link with the old high speed railway to Europe. On paper, building this line means road closures, bridge widening, transport disruptions. In practice, it could mean the end of Camden as we know it.

HS2 Bill Does Not Protect Camden

This particular Bill is something of a behemoth... with a colossal 50,000 page environmental impact assessment to accompany it. Within those 50,000 pages lies the future of Camden Town. Every single road closure, bridge widening and business affected is supposed to be taken into consideration within the report. It's why it's so big. However, we don't think they've taken the impact on Camden seriously enough.

Camden Town Is Too Valuable to Lose to HS2

HS2 needs to link up to our existing high speed rail line that takes us to France. The current proposal for this would mean a link that cuts directly through the heart of Camden Town... 90% of Camden Lock market falls within 30 meters of site, as does 95% of Stables market. Hawley market would effectively be closed, with other iconic markets devastated by the project.

Camden Town markets are one of London and the UK's most popular tourist destinations, visited by over 100,000 tourists each weekend. Restaurants, bars and entertainment venues contribute to a multi-million pound night-time economy. The area has grown so much that the main tube station is struggling to cope.

It is a great testimony to the resilience of Amy's family that soon after her death they decided to work on retaining her legacy by setting up a new charity in her name, with the aim of preventing the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people.

Love Your Live Music Venue

If people don't go to these venues then they will be unsustainable in the long run. If smaller venues go then it will make it almost impossible for budding musicians to get their first gig. What will happen then? Will we be left with a situation where acts have to audition for talent shows to get their break? It's a depressing thought.
