That's a shame - I was looking forward to the Bard at the Barge.

Had a kind of ring to it.........

Sorry to deviate, but does anyone know of any plans for any outdoor screenings of the football on the 12th? I have a dream that there would be some magnificent idea to rig up a screen on Hilly Fields but I think that's pretty wishful. I see blankets, beers, joviality - could there be anything MORE Brockley?!

Following Remfry's cancellation of this Wednesday's Max gig at the Talbot, Big "D" Evans has stepped into the breach.

He will be signing and playing the Piano.
