Linger till 10.30pm.

Saturday: It's the Boat Race. And the Goat Race.

Go to an excellent comedy club in an unusual, secret location in the middle of the day for free! Only if you're prepared for an act of protest though. It's the day to March for the Alternative. Find out why some people are protesting.
