Where: The Pigeon, 41 Camberwell Church St, Camberwell, London SE5 8TR
When: Main Event On Tuesday 15th September 7:00PM – Exhibition Ends Mid-November26th August – Private Eye cartoonist, Simon Key, is set for an eight week showcase at Anspach & Hobday’s craft beer and bottle-shop, The Pigeon, in Camberwell South London from Tuesday 15th September.

Simon will be in attendance on the first night and will be unveiling a brand new cartoon of The Pigeon, Anspach & Hobday’s emblem and the name of the bar itself.

The artwork will be held in The Pigeon’s Skylight Room for a total of eight weeks. To see Simon’s artwork, all you’ll need to do is make a booking at The Pigeon over the course of the next eight weeks using the OpenTable link here.

To ensure the safety of guests and staff, each booking will have their own table to social distance effectively. The artwork will be positioned on the walls and a large screen also.

The cartoons will be for sale and will be paired with Anspach & Hobday beer for guests looking to immerse themselves in the art.

Simon, who is known for his political and satirical cartoons, has been working with Private Eye for 10 years and has also worked with brands such as Apple and The NHS.

Of the event Simon said “President Trump recently tried to get a cartoon banned…this seems to me to be a very good sign indeed that political cartoons can still ruffle feathers, or, in his case, fake hair.”

The Pigeon’s drink-in opening hours are 5-10pm Tuesday-Saturday. Happy Hour is 5:30-6:30 everyday with half-price Anspach & Hobday pints and £1 off house-wine and Negronis.

The Pigeon came to Camberwell Church Street in October of 2018 and has since become a neighbourhood purveyor of craft-beer, wine and cocktails. The bar has ten-lines of draught beer, an extensive range of bottles and cans, fine wine and takeaway cocktails. The Pigeon is open Tuesday through to Saturday every week.
