❉ An intimate look at the future of Soho by musician Tim Arnold, starring Stephen Fry, Tim Arnold And Marc Almond.
“What’s great is that Tim’s initial work has a lit a fire within so many individuals. It’s only when Soho is threatened that we realise just how much it means to us.” – Stephen Fry
‘Soho Is’ began life in 2016 when Kevin Godley and Tim Arnold united with well know lovers of Soho to talk about the area and loss of performing arts spaces. The film fuses interviews with footage captured and edited by Tim when he started the Save Soho campaign from his Frith Street bedsit in 2014 after the closure of Madame Jojo’s.
An underground recording artist with 3 generations of bona fide Soho family roots (Tim’s mother Polly Perkins – ex Windmill Girl, his grandfather Dickie Arnold – actor manager for Paul Raymond), this is very much a Soho musician’s journey.
Tim’s creative work to celebrate the village he grew up in, both as a recording artist and activist, sparked a mission to draw attention to Soho’s role as a unique platform for performing artists. With Stephen Fry joining Tim’s crusade, their work together inspired a wave of public affection that reminded people just how valuable Soho is to all of us. Successes include saving Madame Jojo’s and Soho Square.
