Arts salon at Loughborough Junction

Anthea Masey, one of Brixton Windmill's volunteer guides, highlights an upcoming literary/film event at Loughborough Junction

Up the Junc celebrates the new year with its first arts salon of the year on Tuesday 24 January 2012 at the Whirled Cinema, Arch 260, Hardess Street (off Herne Hill Road), SE24 0HN. Doors open at 7.30pm. Entrance £5 (concessions £3).

It will be led once again by Loughborough Junction's very own Stella Duffy, whose latest book Theodora tells the tale of a very modern woman who made it from the tough streets of Constantinople to become empress of Rome. It's been described as "Sex in the City meets I Claudius".

Programme

There will be three authors and two films:
Toby Litt, whose latest novel King Death follows the mystery of a live human heart over the roofs of Borough Market and the corridors and car parks of St Guy's Hospital
Emma Darwin, whose life of her present-day heroine, historian Una Pryor, intertwines with that of Elizabeth Woodville, the widow of King Edward IV, uncovering the secret of the tragic princes in the tower in her second novel A Secret Alchemy
Edward Docx, whose hero Dr Forle is studying some eerie forest glades on an Amazonian research station when his life spirals out of control in The Devil's Garden

Domino Players of Brixton from local Loughborough Junction film-maker David Jobanaputra explores the Caribbean passion for dominoes, where playing is a way of life.
2 Bears pop duo - Raf Rundell and Joe Goddard of Hot Chip - filmed the Brixton market traders for their track Work.
