In Public House, an award-winning artist and academic Sarah Turner explores the centrality of pubs and social spaces to communal narrative and memory. In 2012, the Ivy House pub in Peckham was sold to property developers as part of the ongoing gentrification of south London. However, local residents opposed it, registered the building as the UK’s first Asset of Community Value, and re-opened it as a venue for music, dance and community gatherings.
