A Very Grand Opening at Persepolis

fairy
Well there have been an awful lot of developments with our Snackistan cafe in the last few months. But the most important of the lot came with the grand (oh-so-very-grand) opening of our loo last Thursday. We were positively flushed with pride… (ahem). Regular visitors will know that it has actually been in use for around two months, but now – ta-dah – it is officially open for, um, business.
looThe red ribbon was gracefully snipped for us by the very lovely, and deeply and importantly talented, Smoke Fairies, Peckham’s very own rock band (sheesh – it’s such a talented area). And the Peckham Peculiar turned out to witness it all. We would have asked all of you along, but frankly the cubbyhole at the bottom of the stairs can only accommodate 3 or 4 at a time.
What this means in real terms is that you really can make an day or evening out of your visit to see us. Just one warning: if Granny Shopkeeper is visiting and she hears you refer to our smallest room as ‘the toilet’ she will inform you in her most imperious voice that we don’t have one. It has to be ‘lavatory’ or nothing…

  1. A long term and long distance fan (Nottingham is many miles north of Peckham) I saw that you were in this short film and it seems possibly on display at the V&A
