A mysterious “angel” will appear on Primrose Hill at sunrise and not leave until sunset for the next 13 weeks.

Actor and musician Liv Spencer, 42, of Kentish Town Road, Kentish Town, will wander Primrose Hill every Sunday from this week for nearly 17 hours as part of her Angel Project.

She will only leave her position to get food and water from St Mary’s Church in Elsworthy Rise and when the sun has gone down.

Ms Spencer will share stories with visitors who meet her, but aims to be viewed from afar.

She said: “I was looking for a project to push me as a performer and to do something difficult on an emotional level.”

Ms Spencer was inspired by lines of poetry written by William Blake, etched into a plaque on top of Primrose Hill, which read: “I have conversed with the spiritual sun. I saw him on Primrose Hill”.

“I chose Primrose Hill because I love the fact that you can see the city spread out in front of you, but on the hill you are detached from it all,” she added.
