Highgate has more than its fair share of locations if you're looking for a pint, a bite to eat...or a historic ceremony involving antlers!

Originally a village outside of London, Highgate has long been a welcoming spot for travellers and visitors alike. Join us for this fascinating talk as we discover the history of some of its more interesting watering holes!

Hear from an expert on the history of the local pubs and hostelries and open your eyes to some of the more bizarre rituals such as the 'Swearing of the Horns'. You’ll find out all about St Joseph's Parish Centre, which has hosted everything from boxing matches to beauty contests and is still the cheapest pint in Highgate! And we chat to Kate Fugallo who ran the Lauderdale café with her husband Salvatore, from 1985 to 2014, helping take the organisation from one century into another! As she says, ‘we didn’t realise when we pitched up in 1985 it would turn out to be a major part of our lives and of our childrens'.
