2021 Update: We are proud to support The Peckham Peculiar. Find the advert for the SE22 Piano School in the next issue.
We attended the Peckham Peculiar launch party for the newest hyperlocal periodical for Peckham. We were glad to have helped Kickstart the newspaper in a small way. The first issue has a peep inside Peckham’s famous hair salons of Rye Lane, a piece about the legendary Peckham Liberal Club, thoughts on the redevelopment of Peckham Rye station and a recipe for sticky, spicy chicken that I absolutely must try out! You can read the edition online.
Open to all local families, not just students at EOS Dance. Come along and raise money for Kids Company on Saturday 30th November from 12 to 3pm.
There will be ballet and street dance shows involving all the kids in the audience. In addition to this will be lots of stalls, children’s glitter tattoos and a raffle with prizes donated by lots of local businesses (including the SE22 Piano School).
Captured on the Rye and the SE22 Piano School are supporting The Peckham Peculiar on Kickstarter – will you show your support too so they can reach their funding goal of £5000? As of tonight, they are just £387 away from their goal and there’s just a fortnight left to raise the final amount.
‘The Peckham Peculiar’ is a new periodical in one of London’s most vibrant areas.
You should get involved if:
(a) you love newspapers
(b) you want to inspire the local community
(c) you want to be associated with a project that’s hyper-local in one of London’s most up-and-coming and talked about areas!
From TPP’s Kickstarter page: “We want to write about local news. We want to be free so the whole community can read us. We will be a 16 page newspaper that comes out 6 times a year. The emphasis will be on real reporting and unique stories, not celebrity-led drivel. There will also be a strong focus on design and lots of photographs.”
