Yeah, we know, things in the void have been sparse. The other largely reformist, potentially money grabbing and very time consuming website has been sapping most of the energy and what follows is a blatant repost of this weekend’s free stuff.
the void will be back, Grumpy Old Anarchist is threatening to make an appearance this week (we’ve hidden the ketamine) and the void will return to normality soon. In the meantime here’s a shameless plug for Free London Listings.
“Well, Free London Listings has survived it’s first week and with over 500 events now listed we don’t think we’ve done that bad.
The post events feature is acting a bit wobbly, i.e. it don’t work, but it will. We are still in Beta after all.
In the meantime you can email us details of events using the contact form or for a limited period post details of your event in this forum. All events will be copied into the main listings as soon as we get a chance. This is a bit of a stop-gap solution, so don’t get used to it folks.
As for this weekend, it’s not too late in the year to be getting down to some fine tunes in the open air. Leytonstone Car Free Day on Sunday 21st sees the mighty Geno Washington and The Ram Jam Band plus Pauline Black formally of ska legends The Selector playing in the road along with kids stuff, stalls and art exhibits.
Not to be outdone Islingtonians also have a car free day on Saturday when Liverpool Road will be turned into a ‘park’ for the day with an open air cinema featuring films like ‘Cinema Paradiso’ and ‘Howl’s Moving Castle’.
Meanwhile the noble proletarians of the People’s Republic of Peckham host Canal Bridge Green Fayre on Saturday, now in it’s 15th year with local performers, stalls and green info .
Also on Saturday in South London, Stockwell Community Festival has performers, bands, stalls and the famous Pineapple Carnival Parade celebrating Stockwell’s botanical history. Join in the parade as it weaves through Stockwell to Larkhall Park led by Lady Pineapple and her young pineapples
West Londoners can head to Yellow Umbrella Day, Chiswick’s largest annual charity festival held in Chiswick Park on Saturday.
Foody types could do worse than visit the Southbank Festival of Food which begins on Thursday and promises over 40 slow food stalls, along with music and kids entertainment until Sunday.
That’s all for now folks, check back often, new events are posted every day.”
