You can tell us more about Stoke Newington.

The Stuff We Can't Fit In Somewhere Else
  • Comedy Candy, The Lion Bar, Stoke Newington Church Street. Every Thursdy, 8.30pm. for any other information go to
  • Jo's comedy Madhouse is no longer running
  • Fantastic area if you like local history - home to waves of immigrants since the Huguenots first came over, once a posh schooling district (both Danial Defoe and Edgar Allen Poe were educated here), part of the borough of Hackney that takes in areas including the once poverty-striken but now trendy Shoreditch, and the once genteel and now Jewish Stamford Hill.
  • Joe's Comedy Madhouse every Wednesday at Ryan's Bar on Stoke Newington Church Street for a bizarre evening of truly awful comedy.
  • Businesses - like my own Garden Design and Build company (Hector's Garden) Why should you go there?
