Angel pub on Coldharbour Lane to become arty community space

The old Angel public house at 354 Coldharbour Lane is soon to reopen as  ‘key community space, after The Brick Box negotiated a six month trial use of the building.

Brick Box are already a well established concern in nearby Brixton Village (Granville Arcade) and describe themselves as a “‘ground up’ arts organisation and community movement made up of artists, dreamers, hopers and no hopers.”

The group’s aims over the following six months are 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
