NUNHEAD BEATS THE BOUNDS – 20 JULY – STARTS 2PM AT PECKHAM RYE
Nunhead’s very own comedian and professional American, Lewis Schaffer, is organising a community walking event on Saturday 20 July. Nunhead Beats the Bounds is a modern twist on an ancient tradition where local people walk the boundary of their parish, as a celebration of their community (Partially… it was more about making sure other priests and parishes didn’t grab your land and increase their tithes at your expense  – Ed)

Starting at the corner of Peckham Rye East and Nunhead Lane at 2pm, the walk will proceed around the borders of Nunhead, ending at 4pm-ish on Nunhead Green. We plan to meet the walkers at Nunhead Green and sing them a few songs, perhaps jam with the Dulwich Ukelele Club. If you’d like to join us (we’ll probably do the acapella set – see above), please email nunheadcc@yahoo.co.uk, or leave a message on the Facebook page, or the blog.

PULL THE OTHER ONE – VILLAGE HALL EXPERIENCE – 17 AUGUST
The Pull The Other One cabaret and situationist happenings teams are organising a Village Hall Experience on the site of the old Peckham Lido. As you can expect, there will be all kinds of crazy stuff, including black light ping pong, and a Womens Institute formation team.

There will also be a cake competition, a funny vegetable competition, and a pet competition. Entrance forms from the organisers, or from the choir website.

We’ve been asked to do two very short sets: one in the afternoon, and one in the evening. Watch this space for more details.

NEXT REHEARSAL
Next rehearsal is on Thursday 11 July, at Ivydale School, 8pm – 9pm. We will be running through the acapella set in preparation for the Village Hall experience, and then we’re off to the Waverley Arms for beer, sandwiches and drunken singalongs to the juke box, and yet more attempts by the alto section to convince Richard and Becky that the Pixies are really quite good. Hope to see you there…
