Buskers, Street Entertainers
  • Interesting comment here about a local drinking himself to death. Nearly sure I know the person referred to here....had a long residency of industrial drinking at The Angel and The Wrestlers. Possibly may have then moved onto The Bull across the road. Agree that I have not seen him in several years - he may well have passed.
  • - An American barrister (Michael?) who seemed to be intent on drinking himself to death by crawling each and every pub in Highgate. I think he may have succeeded as I haven't seen him for a while
  • the man who asks for 35pence for a pint of milk?
  • There was this one guy who...
  • George Michaels sister has a 'cream' nic nac shop in the Village.
  • The crazy young man who sometimes plays the flute in the village. Occasionally there is the famous "Highgate Tramp", who is actually very cultured and likes ballet.
  • man who walks around with can of beer in his hand stopping passers by and asking for change. man from mental home who wears the black furry hat with ear flaps,sometimes seen with a guitar
  • Mat man on Southwood Lane always raised a laugh on the way to school. He used to open his door at about half eight and bang his doormat against the wall and shout rubbish at the top of his voice. Is the looney bin still open? There were plenty of characters there, my favourite being the Crusader who walked up and down the village in full crusader gear (obviously).
  • None, but keep a watch out, for the 'Hat Man' always wares a hat, dark leather coat, walks continously around Highgate. Say Hi..he's a nice troubled guy.
