Stroud Green On Film: A Glimpse Into Local Life

A taste of what it's like to live in Inner North London's best kept secret.

What’s it really like to live in Stroud Green? For those of you unfamiliar with the area, take a look at this rather brilliant video to get a look at the independent businesses, pubs, restaurants, Victorian houses and leafy streets of this North London gem of a neighbourhood. For those of you who live and work in the area, have a look to see if you can spot yourself on its streets; walking your dog, buying bananas from Stroud Green Fruit and Veg, cheering to a bad joke over a pint outside The Worlds End.

Follow scenes through streets of buzzing bars and along the foodie strip of award winning eateries peppered with independent gift and furniture shops. Turn off down Tollington Park briefly and catch your friendly waiter at The Front Room who will happily take your order for your third Eggs Benedict breakfast of the week. Dancing along the rows of chimney pots you’ll find yourself back at ivy coated local favourite, The Faltering Fullback pub with their epic treehouse beer garden to the rear of the drinking den. Time to pick yourself a new look at PAK Wigs before getting mistaken for an extra down at the Park Theatre.

The short was produced and filmed by locally based design studio and creative communications agency, The Barefaced Movement who have a deep-seated connection with the area as many of their team live or grew up in the area. Locally based band DEEDS were brought in to supply the accompanying music, showcasing local homegrown talent in the process. Band members Rollo and Kiri Inglis have lived in N4 for as long as they can remember and have performed all over London including The Electric in Brixton, Visions Festival, The Waiting Room and even at The Museum of London last year.
