A new and cutting edge venue..
We recently had a really lovely evening at Asylum, Caroline Gardens in Peckham (South East London and the new Shoreditch according to those in the know!). The Asylum is actually a Georgian chapel in the heart of London's largest complex of arms houses. Despite being called an asylum, the Grade II listed site was not a home for lunatics; instead the word was used in its older sense, meaning 'sanctuary'. It suffered considerable damage in World War 2 but amazingly its incredible stained glass windows, and fascinating collection of carved stone monuments, remain intact.
