(Pub)lic House: CR0 Tour – Croydon Urban Room

A short film installation of (Pub)lic House, free to watch in pubs and spaces across Croydon

Duration: 30 mins (looping)

Pubs across Croydon have been boarded up, abandoned and left to be empty. Phoebe remembers growing up in them. Roger (her Dad) remembers playing music in them since the early 90s. Together they go on a pub crawl across Croydon asking 3 questions: “What happened in these pubs, what are they now and what could they become?”. Compiled through interviews and workshops, see their exploration of the music, stories and sounds that populate(d) these pubs.

‘(Pub)lic House’ is one of the artist projects within Turf Projects’ commission series Desire Paths, as part of This Is Croydon, London Borough of Culture 2023 @croydonculture.
