If you like the bare-brick chic of Shoreditch, then you will feel right at home at this old building converted for use as an arts centre. We went to watch CHILDREN OF FATE, an adaptation of a lauded Argentinian play that chimes as much with Cameronian Britain as is does with Argentinian socio-economic upheaval. A quick drink at the rustic bar which is settled at the back of a cafe/room that doubles as a stand-up venue and screening room. Lots of unmatched furniture, sofas, stools, tables, give a cool laid back homey feel. I would come back just for a drink and a bite to eat (try the sausage and apricot rolls). You can take the drinks down to the courtyard at the front entrance where there is also seating, tables and twinkly lights. The play itself was in a room converted to a theatre with the 'stage' on the floor level and raised seating facing it. There is a pillar in front of two of the middle seats but otherwise the views were excellent and the designers and actors made good use of the room throughout the play. There is a lift if you have trouble walking up to the 3rd floor. I really like this venue and their work. The people are lovely and they are making an effort to make this a really great cultural centre. This was an unexpected event for me, as a friend invited me and I had never heard of this place but it has to be my find of the year.
