Livesey Memorial Hall

Today I stumbled upon this wonderful blog post by Running Past about Livesey Memorial Hall, a rather topical subject:

I am ambivalent about the gas holders, but fond of the building they tower over.

Good share @Vennerist

One thing I noticed:

Does this imply that Southwark Council (as opposed to Lewisham) currently own the building?

It’s been renovated substantially on the inside . It’s a wonderful venue for weddings and music and theatre with massive potential .
When I went there last time I heard the regular club part of the building was closed for a year whilst the big hall was done up .
My last visit was for a weddding but I remember Sydenham Arts once hosted a really good “ Colours of India “ with dancing , music and interactive Bhangra. It’s a great asset to Sydenham .
