Hundreds flocked to the final events of the Hampstead Summer Festival over the weekend.
Heath Street was packed with visitors to the Big Fair on Sunday, drawn by the mix of street food, family attractions and live music. There were also donkeys and birds of prey to entertain children along with fairground rides.
Keats House was the venue for a summer garden party on Saturday.
Author and illustrator Fabi Santiago enthralled the assembled guests with a reading from her book “Tiger in A Tutu”,
Hampstead estate agent Els Bauer, who organised the week-long festival, said: “People were pouring in even before the event officially opened.
