Palms - Peckham's future

Thu 14 March 2019, 8:33 am

London's only specialist BAME hair and beauty arcade has opened, in the heart of Peckham Rye.

The Palms comprises 40 individual hair and beauty micro-businesses and sole traders, seven independent hair salons, and six independent beauticians, within a fully equipped parlour.

There is also three hospitality units (including a rum bar), an events space hosting weekly workshops, knowledge transfer seminars, supper clubs and events, and a community hall for use by the local Atwell Estate residents.

The units have primarily been offered to businesses, mainly Afro- Caribbean hairdressers and nail bars, that need to be temporarily re-located during work to create the new public square in front of Peckham Rye Station.

This work will continue until 2021 and involves transforming the narrow, dimly lit passageways that lead to the station into the square.
