Royal Court comes to the Bussey building, Peckham!

Peckham Vision grew out of the campaign to draw attention to the potential of the Bussey building and the Copeland quarter site in the middle of the town centre which was threatened with demolition and full closure to town centre use. The historic Bussey building, and the site were saved, and have just gone on year by year demonstrating the potential we saw. Now that central part of Rye Lane, in and around Peckham Rye station, is showing how it can flower as a home for the burgeoning cultural and artistic enterprises in Peckham.

Now we have the exciting news that our work has helped to attract the Royal Court to Peckham for two months starting on 29 September. Details of this year’s performances and booking arrangements below. Performances are already being sold out! We look forward to continuing to work with the Royal Court and especially their work to open up these methods and experiences for the whole community. Read more of this post

During August, Tues-Fri 11am-5pm, and Sat 11am-4pm, you can see in Peckham Space, in Peckham town square, a large collage of line drawings of the architectural detail of all the buildings in Rye Lane. See Message from Peckham Space below. Read more of this post
