What have I missed since April 3rd?

It’s been a relatively quiet week in NW6 but, as always, here’s some of the local news you might have missed.

It’s been a bad week for the Cock Tavern Theatre: right after it received some great publicity  from the BBC, it was forced to close down.

Mark Riley gave @WHampstead a shout out on his BBC6 programme (sadly getting my name wrong) (from 1h 7′ 14″)

Last year’s Hampstead & Kilburn PPC Tamsin Omond had a magistrate’s hearing adjourned.

West Hampstead Conservation Area is looking for a secretary (unpaid).

The ever-popular Spicy Basil on the High Road has closed for a refurb, but customers are eager for its reopening.

Talking of Basil (segue of the week), here’s a website devoted to Basil Spence who designed Swiss Cottage Library.

There’s some positive news about improvements to the western West Hampstead borders (aka Cricklewood).

Kilburn author Robert Hudson came across a Kilburn tragedy.

Coming up
The sixth local get-together aka #whampgather, takes place at The Lion on West End Lane from 8pm on Thursday.
