City Ramblers Revival have been invited to perform at the Ivy House Nunhead on 29th August at a festival to celebrate two years since it re-opened as a co-operative pub. See www.ivyhousenunhead.com for more information on this weekend event. I’m currently writing a song about the Ivy House, a great old pub and music venue with stage – saved from the developers by local action.
