The Big Noise Festival 2013

Over the past year or so Peckham seems to have been growing in popularity and there seem to be new events and venues springing up all the time.  With Franks bar and the re-vamp of the now trendy Bellenden Road it’s certainly starting to rival Brixton as a place for young 20-30 somethings to live and party.  So now, as […]

Play Team Sport

If you’ve been meaning to find a local sports club since you moved to South London, or if exercise is one of your new year resolutions let Go Mammoth do the work for you (although not the actual exercise I’m afraid).  They offer a huge variety of team sports including volleyball, football and touch rugby.  I […]

Ritzy Brixton

The Ritzy is the Brixton branch of the Picturehouse chain and is much more than just a cinema, with the bar a venue in its own right.  What’s more, you can take your drink into the screening with you.  This is not the only bonus, the screens all have their own quirks, some small and […]
