What we're about

I'm a Londoner with an extremely short attention span and a burning desire to get as much as possible out of this great city. There's not really much of a plan. Most events will probably be evening and London based but I'd also like to do the odd walk and day trip to Brighton / Cambridge / etc. I'd like to keep this as low budget for everyone as possible. A few ideas:

Picnic in Regent's Park followed by outdoor Shakespeare production
Dim Sum on the Southbank followed by a show
A curry night on Brick Lane
Coffee and a wander round Spitalfields / Borough / Portobello market on the weekend
A photography / art exhibition in Shoreditch followed by drinks
A wander round Camden followed by a show at the Roundhouse
Tour round a disused power station
Museums, exhibitions, food, Etc., etc.!

This is a very democratic group. If there's something you'd like to do: show, event, restaurant, market, film or whatever you can suggest it yourself on the group homepage. If three other members sign up it's a go!

Look forward to meeting you!

James.
