Ladywell Playtower Exhibition postponed

Due to unforseen circumstances and ongoing discussions with Lewisham Council, we have postponed our public exhibitions which were scheduled to be held on Thursday 17th January and Saturday 19th January at Lewisham Parish Church. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and will provide an update on new exhibition dates in due course.


Guildmore and Curzon Cinema were appointed by the London Borough of Lewisham in November 2017 to bring forward proposals for the restoration of Ladywell Playtower. There proposals for a new 3-screen cinema, complete with a freely accessible public events foyer and complementary café, bar and restaurant uses, offers a great opportunity for the sustainable restoration and revival of the building, which sits on Historic England’s ‘Heritage at-risk’ register.

A report to this appointment can be accessed here.

Guildmore and Curzon Cinema are now running a consultation process to hear local comments on the development and their restoration proposals prior to submitting a planning application.

Since the successful appointment in November 2017, Guildmore has been in extensive discussions with the council and local stakeholders to bring forward viable proposals for the site.


The site is located approximately 1km to the south west of Lewisham centre, and is situated roughly half way between Lewisham High Street and Ladywell village centre.
