Only joking. There aren’t any as far as I’ve heard. Apart from something at the Royal Standard pub, which is a bit grim at the best of times. I wrote to both Lewisham and Greenwich councils, asking if anyone had applied to close their streets in order to put up some buns, bunting, and retro-imperialism, but astonishingly nobody has.
Or at least, nobody in Lewisham has, and Greenwich won’t say, as it would encourage gate-crashers… Or something.
I’m off to the shelters until it passes. I fancy one of those cups though.
UPDATE: There are some parties going on, although none that involve the council closing roads. See the comments for more info.
Wonder how much it costs to repair something like this.
UPDATE: Here it is on fixmystreet.com
UPDATE 2: Fixed! Actually I think it was fixed in under a week! Well done Lewisham Council!
Frightening story in the News Hopper today. Going to carry ID with me when I go running from now on.
According to their facebook page, the market will go ahead this Sunday.

I recommend not shouting “biggledy boo“, as you walk into the gallery.

UPDATE: About a zillion people are googling this blog asking “where is blackheath fun fair?”, so here’s a map. Not sure about the circus location though.. If it’s wrong, let me know in the comments. I’ll try to make a more accurate version later. Come by train (parking is terrible in Blackheath), turn left out of the station and walk up the hill. When you get to the heath, you’ll see the fair.
Black Vanilla (the new-ish
ice cream gelataria shop in the village) is having an easter egg hunt tomorrow. You can see the posters in their window, and the full range of posters are also on Lost In Style’s blog (the people who designed Black Vanilla’s branding).
There’s nothing on Black Vanilla’s website about the egg hunt, but it was mentioned on their twitter account a couple of days back.
It starts at 9am, and from the look of the designer’s site, a series of little tags will be hidden around the village. Then we get to hunt for them, and bring them to the shop in return for free goodies, such as:
- 1st prize – a huge easter egg
- 2nd prize – large tub of gelato
- 3rd prize – medium tub of gelato
- 4th prize – bambino gelato cone
It says there’s a maximum of 5 tags per winner, so presumably there will be quite a few dotted around.
(PS: Back from hols…)
According to The Pink Paper, an
outdoor indooor (well, in a tent) pop-up cinema will be screening The Lost Boys on 26th April, on Blackheath! They’re also showing Pricilla Queen of the Desert, and Strictly Ballroom at other locations around London:
UPDATE: It’s not outdoors and costs £12.50. But still might be fun…
