Flowery piano

Blackheath Conservatoire Flowery Piano

There’s a piano covered in grass in front of The Conservatoire.  It’s been there for ages, but I couldn’t bring myself to write about it, without feeling as though a PR person somewhere was congratulating themselves.  I probably just need to stop being such a miserable bastard.  Anyway, it’s very sweet (except for the sign warning people not to play it).  The questions is – will the drummer do the same thing?

Just don’t go in the attic…

Bates Motel at the Blackheath Conservatoire
Nice idea for a spooky evening at the Blackheath Conservatoire:

The Vanishing Point’s launch event on Saturday October 29: a seedy evening of suspense at the Bates Motel (19 Lee Road, London, SE3 9RQ) for a pop-up, immersive and interactive screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho alongside the most terrifyingly innovative short films from local directors.
Guests are invited to make their reservation online at http://www.thevanishingpoint.org.uk and Reception will be open for checking in at 7.30pm. For guests’ enjoyment, the motel will have a FREE BAR for the evening, with our house pianist on the grand piano, and then what? music? whispers?
“We all go a little mad sometimes. Haven’t you?”

Probably better than their original plan to screen Ghostbusters, much as I love it.

Hoping that the local film-makers have used the creepy cave-face deep below Blackheath to conjure up something terrifying!
