Famous Camden pub, The Hawley Arms, has been put on the property market.

Rising fears that owner, Greene King, will sell the land to developers has sparked a crowdfunding campaign.

Representatives of the pub have called for the public to donate whatever they can in a bid to buy the property and save the cultural hotspot.

The pub used to be favourite to the late singer Amy Winehouse, and has become somewhat of an institution for British musicians. Greene King has owned the freehold since 2004 and said that they have no control over who buys the new lease.

Patrons of the pub have been asked to donate between £10 and £1000 in exchange for drink tokens, t-shirts and a named inscription on the pubs new “Wall of Heroes”. Donations of £20 or more will be entered into a competition to win a signed Amy Winehouse setlist.

The pub continues to be a celebrity magnet and has been visited by Alexa Chung, Noel Fielding and Russel Brand. Bands that frequent the pub include Arctic Monkeys, the Kooks and Wolf Alice.
