a space for you
& your ideas

stop, collaborate & listen


Located in Denmark Hill, Camberwell
Blue Shop Cottage is a central hub for arts, music and culture in South East London.


Ocki Magill, AKA The Letter Bug, bought and renovated this gorgeous shop in 2016 and added the name Blue Shop Cottage upon completion of the makeover.

In the past the shop has been a bookshop, a hairdresser and a fashion store - the space is now Ocki's home but she invites you to get in touch with your ideas. The aim is to create a vibrant space for the local Camberwell and Peckham community. A flower shop one week and a coffee shop the next. The space now has a picture rail and is ready for exhibitions to be hung too.

Rental of the Shop Space (450 sqft) : £150 per day (min 4 days) or £1,000 per week


When hiring the shop the space has:

  • Toilet and sink facility
  • 5ft round table for hire
  • large rectangular trestle table for hire
  • 4 blue metal/wood foldable chairs for hire
  • 6 green metal foldable chairs for hire
  • 2 high stools

past events

At Blue Shop we select local small businesses and or creatives to takeover the space and host wonderful events.
Get in touch at if you too would like to propose an idea.


temple cycles pop-up

Temple Cycles popped up for 10 days at Blue Shop with rip roaring success. They sold over 30 bikes and made a new hire! Their beautiful bikes and accessories wowed the local Camberwell residents and people can’t stop asking when they will be coming back. Temple Cycles are coming back at the end of the Summer!


blue shop cottage sessions

Every month Ocki and Cameron Niven, a friend and local folk musician, host monthly gigs for local musicians selling 40 tickets with three performances per evening. All events have sold out and each one is decorated slightly differently drawing different acts and crowds. We are also currently looking for a drinks sponsor.


cock&tail cocktail bar

Fred and his boys took over the shop with their gorgeous wooden bar and together we decorated the windows and filled the space with plants and books and hooked up a soundsystem. Live Music and incredible cocktails meant people poured in and Cock&Tail are returning at the end of the summer.
