Crown & Sceptre pub at risk
We are sad to hear that the Crown & Sceptre pub, a short way up Streatham Hill from the Theatre is at risk after a closure date of 22 May 2022 was announced.
The pub has contributed to Streatham’s creative scene over many years, including:
- As home to Normal Hartnell, costumier to the Queen
- Referred to in a song by The Clash
- As home to the parents of Glenn Cornick, founder member and bass guitarist of Jethro Tull and later Wild Turkey
Hopefully the pub won’t be lost!
Update: the pub has reopened!
