'''[http://www.timeout.com/london/nightlife/clf-art-cafe-block-a-bussey-building From Time Out 8th September 2016:]''' ''“One of the many sources of Peckham pride, this incredible post-industrial building is simply one of London's best venues. Saved from demolition in 2007 by a dedicated team from community group Peckham Vision & The Chronic Love Foundation [CLF], the CLF Art Cafe (Block A, Bussey Building) is a multi-floored concrete block that has thrived as a warehouse-style club at night and a top arts venue during the day. Top promoters consistently bring in some of the best names on the cutting-edge, underground and alternative dance scenes, across pretty much any genre you care to name, but leaning primarily towards house, deep techno, garage and disco. The Bussey also hosts regular nights that offer more accessible sounds, including Zonk Disco and The South London Soul Train, making it one of the best venues in London for funk and soul club nights. All of which means that it's one hell of a draw the whole year round. The building's theatre has links to the Royal Court and its admirable Theatre Local scheme, which helps the theatre dilute the effect of its rarefied Sloane Square address and reach out to more diverse audiences. But the multi-floored post-industrial space has become a dynamic arts centre in its own right, and now programmes everything from art installations and new plays to classics and opera.”
