1. Finally! A public consultation on 187 Kentish Town Road.
What’s the best way to use the former Pizza Express building, originally built as the assembly hall for the polytechnic in 1929? Our stories last month certainly generated huge interest from readers and businesses, with at least two cinema chains keen to start discussions with the owners.
And now, on Monday July 15, readers are invited to view plans being prepared to bring the building back into active use by “urban practitioners” AM-UP. Their website says they’re “fully equipped to address the complex, contemporary challenges faced by towns and cities not only in this country but around the world.”
Hmmm. We’ll let you know more info when we have it, but let’s hope they listen to the thousands of you who would like a cinema or multi-arts space. Kentish Town Congregational Church Hall, Monday July 15th 3-8 pm.
Next: what on earth is the Cardigan Club?
