The Half Moon Reopens

The Half Moon, Herne Hill, closed since 2013, reopened on Monday, 20th March, 2017. Halle-bloody-doodah!

To celebrate, here are some pics of the new place, but first, the wonderful barred list from the old days of this Herne Hill institution.

You may also enjoy Janine Booth’s poem inspired by the list, as if the roll call itself wasn’t poetry enough.
