Something strange is going on around here.

1) Fake shop on Lower Marsh - shop sign says 'Amber Rose'

2) Big 'Gym this way' signs all up the Cut

3) Sign outside the Palaestra building on corner of Union St and Blackfriars Bridge Road 'Urban Centre' with an arrow pointing down Union Street

4)Shiny silver and black sign 'Academy Costumes' on wall next to the Union Jack pub on Union Street.

Can anyone explain?

1) Filming for a advert, apparently -

2) See thread here

3) Contemporary Urban Centre (which formerly had the riduculously long name of 'Novas Contemporary Urban Centre London Bridge Bankside')

4) Academy Costumes is real and on Rushworth Street. Been there for ages.

Thank you all very much.

Let's hope those nasty arrows on the Cut go away soon.

It would have been curtains if he sang "I like to get really p*ssed and start fights, followed by a Doner with extra chili sauce."
