London news and opinion
Londonist Out Loud is presented and produced by N Quentin Woolf. In the studio with him this week…

  • Jack Gilbert of Rainbow Hamlets, the Tower Hamlets LGBT Community forum
  • Toria Parsons of SingItOut, an organisation that organises singing classes for everyday people

The guests tackle Boris Johnson's track record, anti-gay stickering around London, the introduction of blowfish to a private club, planning ahead for 2012, a talent show for buskers, train passengers accused of trespass...and neo-brutalist trees.

Walking tour
Nigel of Bermondsey leads NQW on a tour of Southwark and the City, visiting the Crossbones graveyard...a TfL car park that hides a morbid secret. The pair then move on to Borough Market, London Bridge, the Tower of London, Monument and the Bank of England. Expect spooks, folklore and...chickens.

Things to do in London
NQW rounds up the latest shows, exhibitions and other happenings around town.
