Not quite a pub

These days, Brockley seems to have more places to hang pictures than it does to order a pint, so for those waiting for The Talbot's gastromorphosis, this may come as scant consolation.

Here's a note from Jamie from The Talbot, which we received a couple of days ago:

"No real developments in terms of the refurbishment. However this Thursday Rob Osbourne (the old manager) is turning The Talbot into a gallery for a couple of days - the show is called Nicotine Memories."

The show includes site-specific installations, prints, illustration and painting.

The show started yesterday [which explains why some people thought it had reopened] and continues today until 4pm and tomorrow from midday until 4pm.
