Cloud Nine Media | KPH United: A Pub in Peril
Vince Power, manager of the KPH pub (the Kensington Park Hotel), had been in an ongoing dispute with developers for the past three years, who want to close down this community asset and turn it into an estate agents and luxury flats. This was a film to raise awareness for the plight of community pubs like the KPH and dozens of other music venues around the UK which face closure on a daily basis due to aggressive development and are seeing the erosion of our history and culture. Sadly after a drawn out battle Vince lost his fight in court and had to close the pub on the 7th April 2016. It has since been turned in to a stripped-down minimalist pub run by the developers till building plans are approved.
