This Weekend

Just a quick blog as I have ‘done stuff I need to do’ (phew!), I just want to mention that this weekend in London will be exciting as there is Open Rehearsal (where people can join in various arts events’ or watch for free or take part in for a small fee.

There is also this for cyclists (and anyone else for that matter) who like to draw:
