London band, The Unfortunates, host Unlondon, a free one-day festival of literature, music and visual art inspired by the less celebrated side of the capital city. Unappreciated and unknown to many, this is a London of libraries and launderettes, of back streets and betting shops, a city whose very future is under threat as council housing is 'regenerated' out of existence, and as local pubs make way for buy-to-let apartments, sold off-plan to overseas property investors.

Speakers include cult writer and poet Bernard Kops, the inspiration for Mannie Katz in Absolute Beginners; The Bus We Loved author, Travis Elborough; Ken Worpole, whose pioneering study of working class writing, Dockers and Detectives reintroduced Alexander Baron’s London classic The Lowlife to a new generation of readers; and Des De Moor, author of the CAMRA Guide to London’s Best Beer.
