The Hampstead Summer Festival Art Fair returns to Whitestone Pond on Sunday 23 June.
For centuries Hampstead has been home and inspiration to many practicing artists and art has always played an important role in the Hampstead Summer Festival.
This year, the HSF Art Fair – in association with Hampstead School of Art - is back on Sunday, 23 June at Whitestone Pond and will be officially opened at 12 noon. Watch this space for information about our celebrity opener!
We’re passionate about giving everyone the opportunity to learn about, experience, and enjoy art.
Art to see, art to buy, demonstrations, workshops and children’s activities, it attracts serious buyers, those looking to start a collection, and those prepared to get their hands dirty and unleash the inner artist – all to the backdrop of live music and entertainment. Plus fine wine, artisan food and handmade produce from local suppliers.
Festival goers are invited to paint on the giant community canvas and Hampstead School of Art tutors work live demonstrating techniques such as Chinese Brush Painting, Silk Painting, Printmaking, Mosaics, Fabric Painting and Portraiture. Children will be invited to take part in their own special Activity event.Continued
The Tenant Fees Act 2019 came into force on 1 June which will ban all fees charged to Tenants and will cap security and holding deposits, amongst other changes. The aim of the Act is to make renting more affordable and transparent for tenants, which will affect what can and cannot be charged.
For tenancies where the annual rent is less that £50,000 per annum, the Security Deposit will be capped at 5 weeks rent, 6 weeks rent for where the annual rent is £50,000 or more.
The Holding Deposit for a tenant to reserve a property will not exceed 1 weeks rent and a 'deadline for Agreement' will be set at 15 calendar days.
The cost of Referencing will now be passed on to the landlord.
Rent that is in arrears by more than 14 days will be charged at 3% above the Bank of England Base Rate.
Permitted charges include lost keys or other security devices; variation of contract; change of sharer; early termination.

By the 1820s London was fast expanding and local landlords were busy developing their lands. Hampstead’s Lord of the Manor was no different, but thanks to local activism, state intervention and not a little skulduggery the Heath was saved.
