Picturehouse kids club

Clapham and Brixton Picturehouse Cinemas both have a great kids club where they show cartoons for the kids in the morning on the weekends for a very cheap price, great rescuers of rainy Saturdays or Sundays mornings 🙂

Lambeth country show

Dates for the Lambeth Country show this year are already out! 15th and 16th of July 2017

Here a few pictures from the previous years editions if you have never been 🙂

Did you know…

… that apparently the building where you can now find the Ritzy Cinema was the first cinema based on the south side of the Thames in London? Wikipedia states that it first opened in March 1911 as “the Electric Pavilion” and was one of England’s earliest purpose-built cinemas seating over 750 seats in the single auditorium. Like many cinemas of the period, it was fitted with an organ.

Thank God it is still here nowadays as it is a great cinema with a very affordable kids club as well, and also offers many other activities at daytime as well such as Yoga classes!

Unusual protest

For those who have walked for a decade from Brixton Hill into Brixton Water Lane on their way to Hootananny or Brockwell park, the meaning of this graffiti is much deeper than just some vandalism… If you want to understand more about it, read my previous post about Reclaiming Brixton.

Vintage Morleys of Brixton bag

 

Who has not bought a new kitchen appliance, some toys for a birthday present or clothes here? In 10 years I bought my wedding shoes and my favorite Bertie boots, some nice linen, a vase, new induction frying pans, thank you cards and one of Mo Williams The Pigeon children books! So glad Morleys survives…
