    Save the New Piccadilly

    Protest seems to be the theme of the week. I'm not apologising. Now Pip points me to an article in the Society Guardian detailing the dilemma facing the wonderful jewel at the heart of London, the New Piccadilly , facing closure after the landlords announced their intention to increase the annual rent from £51,000 to £75,000.

    Thankfully the New Piccadilly's owner, Lorenzo "Lolly" Marioni, is fighting it (demanding a rent tribunal). Hopefully the Twentieth Century Society will put some weight behind it, because English Heritage are being no help at all. Viva New Piccadilly!
