Not content with celebrating our fourth birthday, October also sees the sixth in our popular series of guided walks.
When: Friday 24 October - walk leaves at 7pm.
What: Don't you want to go to Chelsea? Dogs on sticks, ghost bears, lavatory humour, satanic sports venues, secret agents, vampires, phantom Eskimos, wombats, ultra violence and suicidal sea captains. More bonkers tales than you can shake a stick (with or without a dog attached) at.
Walk lasts ninety minutes
Who: Folklorist Chris Roberts is back, and armed with more semi-coherent tales than a Chelsea Pensioner who's smoked too many weeds from Chelsea Physic Garden. Chris is a veteran tour guide, author of Cross-River Traffic, resurrector of the Penny Dreadful with his One Eye Grey, and all-round top bloke.
Where: Meet 7pm Outside the new Saatchi Gallery, Duke of York's Parade Ground, Kings Road. (Map will be provided to attendees in advance.)
There are almost six reasons you should come, all copy and pasted from Part V, because we're
lazy fond of recycling:
1. It's free! And contains only the smallest of catches (Chris uses the opportunity to try and flog copies of One Eye Grey. Bless him).
2. You'll meet other London obsessives, including some of the Londonist team. We're always looking for new writers - so come chat to us if you're interested.
3. You’ll be guided by the master brain behind the Evening Standard Random Headline Generator.
4. There's beer. (Though that’s not free.)
5. You get an exclusive Londonist badge (exclusive in that we're not aware of anyone else making Londonist badges).
If you'd like to join us, please could you email londonist - at - gmail - dot - com with expected number of attendees. Previous walks have been really, really popular, so we're going to cap the number this time.
