Camberwell Fair is back on 20th August. It's moving to Burgess Park as it's already outgrown the Green after one year.
Looks like the old library is being taken over by meat fetishists (a licence application from this lot is in the window) Cannon & Cannon · British Cured Meat

I'm not sure Camberwell is ready for a 'Meat School', but maybe that's just me.
I'm putting on a free show at the Old Dispensary this Friday with a very original Brooklyn band. It's free all night. Please come along!
Fri 5th Aug: Brooklyn comes to Camberwell – Bombay Rickey live at the Old Dispensary
It's Denmark Hill. It's on a hill, and that hill is called Denmark Hill.
The railway and Coldharbour Lane are significant in this part of London. They mark the edge of the flat area stretching down to the river. Below the railway line is flat london, above the railway is hilly London. You are above the railway, just like Herne Hill, Tulse Hill, Brixton Hill. Camberwell is the other side of the tracks in flatland.
Camberwell isn't your closest amenities/shopping area either. East Dulwich is closer. You might want to just not mention that too much.
I was going along with this until you said East Dulwich is my closest shopping area. It's quicker for me to walk to Morrison's than it is to Champion Hill Sainsbury's, and if you're talking East Dulwich proper it's even further away!
Anyway, now I've lived here a month I'm leaning towards it being Camberwell, just on the basis of that's where I drink.
You are wrong and Teuchter is right. Don't bring facts into this. The name of your neighbourhood is the name of the hill (but not Champion Hill) or perhaps your nearest station. HTH.
It's like SW9 vs SW2 all over again!
Don't come round here with your Brixton ways
Went to Maloko last night - really really nice, and a big meal for £6 (and BYOB with £1 a head corkage). Took a while since it was one guy doing everything, but he was great.
Then you must be only a little bit south of the railway line, which means you aren't really on the hill, but also means you must be very close to Denmark Hill train station in which case you definitely live in Denmark Hill. You are excused from living in East Dulwich. Case closed.
Teuchter, which bit of 'Champion Hill Estate' do you not understand?
Had a good night at the Old Dispensary last night. The band were ace.
Hear you met Rudi?
I understand it as a term of greater specificity than any used so far by drachir in defining his/her location.
We had a good night at the Dispensary on Friday. think we'll do it again
Brooklyn’s Bombay Rickey bring their unique indie sound to Camberwell – in photos
Those planning to go to Camberwell Fair in Burgess Park next weekend might like to explore Walworth first...
I quite liked this but it's been a long time since I've been blown away by anything at the SLG. Good to see the old fire station opening up.
Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today at the South London Gallery, Camberwell
Yes it was excellent to see that is now open, however I must admit the blank slide projector installation annoyed me!
London parents and teachers:
Whats up with that fucking helicopter?
Tis one of the background sounds of the area. Expect more. They're building a helipad on the roof of Kings I think.
The helipad was finished a while back!
The helipad is finished but not in use yet. As I understand it, they decided to carry out some other building work at the same time and they can't start using it until that's finished too. In the meantime, the helicopters continue to land in Ruskin Park in the bit just above the foootball pitch enclosures.
If anyone is around this afternoon I can't recommend this highly enough
great stuff thanks to Rocket no.9 of this parish
Flooding on Camberwell New Road today.
Homes at risk as flooding hits south London
Presumably this means there wont be any water when I get home tonight?
Cleared a little now, still closed off. Leak was up by The Bear, fire brigade on the scene quite swiftly.
Looks like Network Rail want to 'do a Peckham Rye' and develop their rail arches on Camberwell Station Road - Network Rail plans to transform Camberwell arches into cafes - Southwark News - depending on your perspective this is either good for Camberwell as it will give the area a sense of place and bring in new develoment or it will be bad as the garages will have to move elsewhere and it will make the whole place more hip and trendy and raise prices.
I hope that it will lead to the reopening of Camberwell Station which apparently was shut to passengers in 1916.
