Urban Laboratory Research Assistant Laura Marshall has written an article for the UCL Events blog about the workshop she co-organised at the Peckham Festival on 10 September as part of our ongoing research in to London's LGBTQI nightlife since 1986.

In collaboration with the Urban Lab's director Dr Ben Campkin, Laura ran a workshop as part of the first-ever Peckham Festival, within the programme of the CAMP-er-VAN. At the event, Laura and Ben presented emerging finding from the research and interviewed a panel featuring Jeffrey Hinton (DJ, producer and visual artist), Mzz Kimberley (international cabaret artist) and Tia Simon-Campbell and Olivia Mastin from Bbz.

An article has also been published in Huck magazine by Samuel Douek about the CAMP-er-VAN - the queer performance and community modified caravan that hosted the Urban Laboratory workshop.
