|So on Saturday afternoon I took off to Camden Town knowing that there was going to be a gathering|
outside the once legendary gay pub The Black Cap. And it's been 3 years since it's shocking closure
with absolutely no outcome of what will happen to this well known LGBT venue.
Saturday marked a third year when a local pressure group gathered once again to campaign to
have it brought back to the local community.
The Pub in Camden High Street was bought by an offshore based company in 2010. And in March 2013
and 2015 planning applications by Pub company Faucet Inn Ltd, to turn the upstairs floors into flats
were refused following heated opposition.
The campaign has attracted actor Stephen Fry as well as Paul O'Grady and activist Peter Tatchell.
THE BLACK CAP HAS BEEN A HUGELY SUCCESSFUL LBGTQ+ PUB AND CABARET VENUE FOR MORE THAN
50 YEARS - FROM WHEN BEING GAY WAS ILLEGAL UP TO THE DAY OF IT'S SHOCKING CLOSURE.
THERE'S BEEN A PUB ON THIS VERY SITE FOR MORE THAN 350 YEARS, KNOWN AS THE BLACK CAP SINCE 1751.
THIS BUILDING OPENED AROUND 1870 AND IS BELOVED IN CAMDEN AND WORLWIDE.
HELP US ENSURE THAT IT STAYS AS A PUB AND PERFORMANCE VENUE FOR CENTURIES MORE.
