Free Papers in Hackney & East London


Hackney Citizenは、独立系の無料月刊紙で、いつ創刊したかの記載はないけれど、2009年6月にFacebookページが出来たことを考えると、その頃だろう。2010年7月には従来の年4回から毎月の発行になり、現在、毎月第一週にハックニー内の駅、カフェ、ショップ、マーケット、図書館などに置かれる。

East End Reviewについては、この12月号が3号目とまだ新しく、イーストロンドンの音楽やアート、シアター、本、映画、ファッション、フード&ドリンクを紹介するということぐらいしか、情報がない。でも、発行者がHackney Citizenと同じくCitizen Media Ltdなので、この2紙は姉妹紙なんだろう。



As East End’s reputation as a hip & exciting district in London has gone up steeply in recent few years, some free papers have come out to tell readers about local news, cafes & restaurants, art & culture, and events. The three papers in the photo above are the ones I often see at many places across the area.

Hackney Citizen is Hackney’s independent, free monthly newspaper. I can’t find when they started, but I guess it was June 2009 when they joined Facebook. From July 2010, it became a monthly publication from its quarterly print editions, distributed in the first week of every month at Hackney’s markets, train stations, and in cafes, shop, businesses and libraries.

I can’t find much information on internet about East End Review, rather than talking about arts and culture in East London, such as music, art, theatre, books, film, and fashion, as well as food & drink. And this December issue is the third edition of them. But the publisher, Citizen Media Ltd, is the same as of Hackney Citizen, so I assume they are sister papers.

Dalstonist offers news about local culture, music, events and nightlife for 18-34 year olds (I am out of their target readers…) in emerging area of Dalston and the surrounding area in Hackney. They started as online paper but now they launched their first quarterly print publication for winter 2013/14.

All three papers are printed in colour and decently designed. Perfect source to get more in depth information of East End.
