‘(Pub)lic House’: Premiere and a Pint

A film about empty pubs in Croydon, made of interviews edited into poems, maps into animations and words written by the community.

Join us for the premiere of ‘Desire Paths’ commission, ‘(Pub)lic House’ by Phoebe & Roger Wagner. A film about empty pubs in Croydon, made of interviews edited into poems, maps into animations and words written by the community. Grab a bag of scampi fries, a drink and watch this 30 min pub crawl through time.

 

You’re also invited to chat and/or make your own map remembering, imagining and manifesting your hopes for your pub. Have your voice heard by key influencers in pubs in Croydon and join together to rebuild them. (You’re also invited for a little bevvy at The Cricketers Pub after to celebrate and set the world to rights) 🙂

WORKSHOP CODE:

Turf aims to be a space where all are welcomed & respected. We ask all attendees to align with this spirit when booking and support us in creating a welcoming & collaborative atmosphere together. We ask that everyone is;

  • Kind and respectful in our language and behaviour towards others. Turf is a space which is anti racism, sexism, homophobia and ableism.
  • Considerate of others’ time; allowing others room to speak & engage.
  • Respectful of the space itself as belonging to many people, treating the space & objects with care.
  • Attend wherever possible: In 2023, around 30% of people booking free tickets didn’t turn up! Our free tickets are limited and in high demand. Every person who doesn’t turn up means someone else can’t attend, so please let us know if you can’t make it to free up a space. If you don’t attend twice or more without letting us know, you may be restricted from booking again.
