The Royal Bell Hotel

Today I sketched the former Royal Bell Hotel in Bromley, which is currently the target of an enterprising initiative to bring a permanent Arts venue to the centre of the town.  The group who are behind the idea are called the ‘Bromley Arts and Community Initiative’ and they have just received funding from Bromley Council to progress with their plans.

This is what they say about their aims on their blog;

‘We are a Bromley based community group with two specific and related goals:
1) To procure the Royal Bell Hotel in Bromley as a focal point for social, recreational, cultural and educational interests including a community pub
2) To promote and encourage the work of Bromley based artists and creative organisations by enabling the delivery of imaginative, varied and engaging arts-based activities which benefits the whole community


Keep up with developments via the blog at http://bromleyartsandcommunity.blogspot.co.uk/ or follow them on twitter @BromCommunity

  3. Paris is a truly enchanting city. Its romantic aura encompasses you the moment you step into the city. Every boulevard, every sidewalk, thoroughfare, every street corner of Paris is a treat for the eye of the discerning tourist. Whether you're parading the Grande Gallery of the Louvre or admiring the fabulous interiors of the Palace of Versailles, whether you're getting your picture painted in the Montmartre or just gazing at the Egyptian obelisk in the Place de la Concorde, you'll always be surrounded by the rich heritage of Paris, a heritage that's inextricably interwoven with the city, its people and its monuments. And all the Paris hotels, however modern or sophisticated, try to be the archetype of the city's wonderful past. So it's no wonder that tourists feel the turmoil and turbulence of the Bastille, hear the screams and shrieks of guillotine victims, and perceive the sounds of Louis's hundred horsemen clip-clopping on the roads of Paris while they roam in Paris or when they reside at the Paris hotels.
