The first of these 2015 series of events, mainly focusing on Peckham's Art Deco Heritage and the threat to it’s future by the wrecking ball - something which has already cost us amazing buildings like The Peckham Odeon Cinema and recently non Art Deco buildings like The Bussey Building.

We’ll also be taking a look at the deep architectural heritage of other styles in the area, Georgian to Victorian [hosted by Benedict O’Looney] as well as Peckham Vision hosting an Exhibition of Photos and info on Peckham's Past, Present and Future.

"A hundred years ago, Rye Lane was known as the 'Golden Mile' for London's shopping. There are many traces of this in Rye Lane today, not least the Art Deco buildings.

A focus at this event will be those buildings and their links to local history, commerce, art, music, culture, architecture" Eileen Conn Peckham Vision
