Welcome to 2017!
LONDON MYTHS, MELODRAMA and MORE
Fortunately, some things just keep going and one of them is our Salon for the City - incredibly now in its 5th year. Join us and a select band of other London lovers each month in the wonderful Westminster Arts Library (thank you so much for all who signed our petition to keep it flourishing).
Admission includes a serving of that most London of liquors, gin, courtesy of our friends HENDRICKS but be quick, tickets always sell out. We begin again on January 26th - see below.
And this year we will host more unique, magical bespoke London events for you including London Month of the Dead and Fringe Science with our friends A Curious Invitation and we will finally release a new The Real Tuesday Weld album. Hurrah!
