Born out of local garden concerts organised after lockdown in the summer of 2020, the Islington Festival aims to recreate the community spirit that inspired us during that time. The Festival brings people together to experience high-quality live music and art, in different venues throughout the Borough of Islington.

At Angel Central, there will be an exciting new photography exhibition coming up in partnership with The Islington Storyteller / @Islington_London, where you can see how Islington has changed throughout the years. Throughout the year and a half after starting the curation of ‘Islington_London’, their editor, Ana, met and chatted with dozens of locals, each with a unique story to tell. It seemed unfortunate that very few people had the opportunity to discover the multitude of hidden gems our neighbourhood is lucky to have.

For this reason, it felt only natural to create a space for sharing special things about Islington and nearby areas. Alongside ‘Islington_London’, The Islington Storyteller explores some of the most unique stories about our neighbourhood.

Launching in the lead-up to the festival, the exhibition will stay open throughout the festival’s duration and is FREE to attend.
