The Grade II-listed building and its grounds were transformed into a bustling market offering artisan food and drink, with independent vendors also selling art and craft items.

Children enjoyed a special one-hour art workshop complete with face painting and collage making, while adults could sample Highgate-made gin and cakes.

Overjoyed with the response, organisers say it could become a seasonal event in the calendar.

Katherine Ives, director of Lauderdale House, said: “The stalls were selling items you wouldn’t usually find in the high street shops and it’s great to be able to offer something like this to the community.”
