Angel pub on Coldharbour Lane becomes arty community space run by Brick Box

Surely they'll notice the sudden cessation of the constant hoity-toity partying, rowdy aristo dinner clubs and 24hr noise pollution?
They certainly won't miss any community events seeing as Brick Box offered none, but at least you won't have to step past any more of those phantom notice boards.

So, how are you liking how they've left the pub looking for locals? Looking good to your eyes?

It's already been sold to property developers who will be turning it into flats. Brick Box were just there to soften up the place ready for the big sale.

Are the planning permissions in place Ed?

Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere.

The plans are in place for the 'vibrant' location.
Lexadon are pleased to announce planning permission for three mews houses, Five high-specification apartments and one commercial space. With its original features and vibrant location Lexadon are excited to be working on this development.

I cant remember now. I thought he was giving him cash.

here's their take on it anyway.


In Spring 2012 The Brick Box negotiated a 6 month trial use of an exciting and well-known space in Brixton, 354 Coldharbour Lane, formerly The Angel public house.


Over the past six months we have aimed to:
Provide a welcoming, inspiring and safe space for people
Build an artistic community
Offer local people opportunities to curate and host events
Experiment with a varied and exciting programme

As per the original agreement, The Brick Box’s six month use of 354 Coldharbour Lane comes to an end this autumn. The Arts Hijack on Saturday 29th September will be the last event in the space.

Through this opportunity, The Brick Box has been able to support partnership organisations and community networks, job seekers, creative entrepreneurs, young people, local business start-ups, charities and over 200 artists and musicians, from Brixton and beyond.

The Brick Box would like to say a huge thank you to Lexadon for the temporary use of the space, Lambeth Council for their continuing support, and our interns, volunteers, artists, neighbours, punters and critics for making us who we are.


This is Brick Box CIC, a social enterprise and community interest company, is now seeking funding for future projects, details of which will be announced on this website.

They certainly know how to talk the funding talk. In reality, the place was closed up and shuttered 95% of the time. Probably more, in fact.

Aren't social enterprises supposed to make money (to further their ends) rather than just use up grants?
 
To some extent; there should be a set agreed surplus amount in their operating documents that doesn't need to be reinvested into furthering the aim of the organisation. SE's aren't the answer to every problem and aren't always going to be financially self sustaining.
 
Report them for what? Other than being woefully inept at community engagement, they're doing what the law allows them to do, which is blend grants and profit making activity.

butbutbut their creative energies need healing in a new place where they can inspire and 'involve' the local community there to be artistic and evoke the streets they tread.
how cruel of you to suggest they abandon their new hope and return to a finsished project who's funding has run out
new pots need to plunged for the sake of fun frivolity and of course ART!
