PLUnk and Plumstead Open Studios present:


Art & Music Showcase


Friday 30th August from 7pm until 10.30pm

Bushmoor Crescent  SE18 3EG

The evening is designed as a showcase where you can meet and see the work of some of the artists taking part in Plumstead Open Studios, which takes place on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th September.  It is an opportunity to meet them in a relaxed atmosphere, with perhaps a drink from the bar.
