#WeAreTheBlackCap: Four Years Fighting - a retrospective photography exhibition with talks and films @ Castlehaven Community Association

#WeAreTheBlackCap – Four years fighting: a retrospective photography exhibition, talks and films. Curated by Peter Herbert from the Arts Project and Chris Barlow & Michael Chan from Outings in Art.

The Black Cap, London’s legendary LGBTQ+ pub and cabaret venue, has been a haven and centre of queer life and culture since the early 1960s. In April 2015 it was suddenly closed to be turned into luxury flats. For nearly four years since then, then #WeAreTheBlackCap grassroots campaign has campaigned for the venue to re-open, successfully resisting numerous attempts to repurpose the building and maintaining a colourful and noisy presence outside the Black Cap nearly every Saturday since the closure.

This small exhibition looks back at the campaign so far, with a selection of lively photographs from the last four years plus talks and short films about what has been called the country’s most visible LGBTQ+ campaign.

Back to the Black Cap: a reunion social @ The Edinboro Castle

Do you have fond memories of Camden’s legendary LGBTQ+ pub and cabaret bar the Black Cap? We’re hosting a get-together for anyone and everyone who has ever loved the Cap: regulars, irregulars, staff, and performers. This LGBT History Month, come and have a drink, share your memories of the ‘Palladium of Drag’, maybe reconnect with old friends and make new ones.

Drop by whenever you like and stay as long as you like. The Edinboro Castle is a laid-back Camden pub just a few minutes’ walk from the Black Cap and Camden Town tube. Visit www.edinborocastlepub.co.uk for more information including food menus and dietary / allergy information.

The pub has level access and there is an accessible toilet. If you would like any further accessibility information, please let us know.

We will be happy to designate a table or two as a sober space if any guests would find that helpful.
