Fitzrovia News printed newspaper
Our latest printed newspaper is out and available to collect and view online. The more observant of you would have noticed that the September issue of Fitzrovia News is only two pages of A4 and in miserable black and white with no photos. Times are tough for many, including us, so we have to cut our paper to suit. We hope to produce a 16 page tabloid in glorious colour in December. Submitted features will be held over until then. Deadline for articles: Sunday 1 November 2020.
