The Laine Pub Company is pleased to announce the launch of Ninth Life – a multi-level pub with great beer, DJs, music, food market, a 9-room immersive theatre experience and full festival vibes
Ninth Life is throwing a party to celebrate the opening weekend (7th Feb – 10th Feb) packed full of free events including DJ Jimi Needles, Chris Hyde Harrison Trio, Jazz FM’s Anne Frankenstein, Scott Walker live drawing wall, more live wall art from Nathan Bowen and performer Bruce Airhead gets stuck in a balloon.
Located in the heart of Catford, the Laine Pub Company is restoring what is one of the oldest and most celebrated pubs in the borough of Lewisham to become ‘Ninth Life’. Its new name takes inspiration from legendary local cat themes and the idea that if humans had nine lives – the ninth really needs to be the one that counts.
Inspired by festival culture, Ninth Life will celebrate a plethora of art forms and activities with music, performance, escapism and play at the top of the agenda. Pub goers can expect, along with great drinks and food, immersive theatre, live art projects and live music, local film screenings, games nights and drag-queen bingo as well as daytime showcases from local youth groups, graffiti festivals, spoken word and art exhibitions.
The Ninth Life team led by Creative Director Dr Claire MacNeill are placing the Catford cultural community at the heart of this refurbishment and its events programme, ensuring the pub becomes a local hub and creative asset for South-East London.
