Carnesky's Tarot Drome made me realise there must be some Roller Derby going on over here and that I'd like to see it! There are a couple of different leagues in London but this is the one that has an event soon, so it's the first I'm going to by default.
I don't know much about Roller Derby other than what I saw in Whip It! But it looks like a fast-paced skating sport, where the girls involved don't pull any punches. I'm interested to see what it's like in real life and not the Hollywood version.
And you don't get much more real life than, bizarrely, Stratford, where this event is taking place. There's not much else in Stratford but we can either go to the 'afterparty' in the King Edward, or head back into town if people want to stay out after.
There's a 'scrimmage' in the day (no idea what that is!) but I'll just be going for the bout which starts at 5.
I'll be getting my ticket on Friday.
