Camberwell Fayre tomorrow.
Let's hope the weather picks up!
Well that was tits.
Bag search (fair enough but stop touching all my things please). Not allowed to take any pics whatsoever.
Drinks, around £5 but with additional £2 for the cup (refundable on return or take it as a souvenir).
General stalls selling their nice things.
Was expecting WAY more in the way of food choice. Very poor. Also was separated from the regular Camberwell Market stalls (which I thought were on Sundays) so you have to come right out of the fayre, by the jobsworth bagcheck wankers, to get round to them.
Music was good
Didn't stay long, wasn't worth it.
That sounds rubbish.
On what grounds were they stopping you taking pics?
I have no idea. I was asked if I had a phone, who bloody doesn't? "Yes," I said. Then he said, "No photographs on the premises". I was too stunned to think of a decent reaction to that. What the hell!?
The "premises" being the park? I think I'd be stumped for a response too because it's a ridiculous thing to request.
Apparently now security people have been informed that it's okay for people to be able to take pics.
So at the moment it's going to basically be pics of a bunch of miserable looking wet people huddled under a tree
That's really bizarre, I've been back and forth all day (getting drinks from my flat!) and the security haven't even made eye contact.
I'm at the 'box park' in elephant (never been here before) don't know about the offices above but the shops & food places have not a single customer in at the moment. Hope the camberwell idea happens but this place feels sad right now.
Were you there during lunch hour? Elephant nandos got busy.
I've noticed quite a lot of artworks is on deliveroo or Uber eats or whichever similar thing I was looking at.
The Joiners have the pizza oven in the garden back as a trial tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon; DJ playing northern soul and £5 pizzas.
Tried I Go Chop the other day. The veggie burrito is very very good; a lot of food for £4.50 too!
How did it go? I like the Joiners.
They made 3 pizzas then accidentally set the barbecue hut on fire and had to stop.
I shouldn't laugh but..
Yes it's an excellent addition to Camberwell. Been 3 times so far and the food has been excellent each time. The guy in there is also super friendly and gives out samples so you can try the different options - turkey gizzard is surprisingly tasty!
Well this is interesting - https://www.southwarknews.co.uk/new...-throughout-south-london-used-stretchers-ww2/
Apparently the fence along Peckham Road and Camberwell Church Street is made of stretchers from the war
Enjoyed going to the Stormbird the other night. Great choice of beers.
Yes, they're very distinctive once you know the signs.
More successful today... the pub is still un-singed!
All been stripped from the dog kennel hill estate now- I have been away for a couple of weeks and has happened i the interim
Piece on BBC News website about the wave mural
Walls of water: Hokusai and the Great Wave of Camberwell - BBC News
Jungle Café has been gentrified
The food has improved in fairness, but it's now £6.90 for a veggie breakfast (or the "Mona Lisa" as it's called, because numbers were too easy) and doesn't even include a tea!
First trip to Camberwell in about 5 years. Beers in the Hermits Cave - excellent selection - then a very nice pizza in Theo's next door. Had tried to go to Silk Road but was completely rammed.
Odd to see Angels and Gypsies sign still up when it's been closed for over a year.
Final observation - based on the night we were there, everyone in Camberwell is 28.
Hermits got a good beer selection? I haven't been there for ages, may have to investigate. Ta!
Yeah a good half dozen pumps including Dark Star Hophead
Cheers! WIll definitely revisit the ol' place
It's always like that now; it's the one everyone's heard about. But a few doors back towards the green is another Szechuan restaurant called Wuli Wuli - went in there a little while ago when Silk Rd was really busy; it looked unpromisingly empty but the food was as good as Silk Rd (at least according to my companions who are more discerning than I about this stuff) and it's not packed with 28 year olds.
Gotcha. We nearly went in there but were put off by the dark emptiness. And that the first thing I spotted on the menu which was "Saliva Chicken". Didn't exactly get the juices flowing. Will be less cowardly next time.
Well that's just untrue - I'm 27
