Following the success of our fundraising party last year we are taking the next step in our vibrant campaign to force Southwark Council to bin the Elephant and Castle shopping Centre scheme. We have engaged the services of high-powered lawyers and are hopeful that we can quash the planning approval in the courts.

So please come along for a evening of entertainment and instruction!
