    I’m really looking forward to this event, I’ve heard on the grapevine its pretty cool, but I’m unsure where exactly its taking place as I’m not familiar with the area, would it be possible create a page with maybe a map and some directions on how to get there by car ad public tranport? I know quite a few people have had a similar problem with finding the location x

Don’t miss live graffiti art, a pop-up cinema and a Guinness World Records attempt for the most number of children being read a story. You’ll find heaps of craft, a vintage tea tent and a local ale bar. Started in 2003 as a protest against the Iraq war, it’s a charity fundraiser with a relaxed atmosphere.• Free, noon-8pm, the Ponderosa, Netherthorpe, […]
