Meanwhile, here’s an event next week we are part of… hope some of you can come along:

‘Blind Dates: compiling and producing the London Rebel History Calendar’

Alex Hodson from Past Tense, a collective project that explores working class, social, subversive and underground history and geography in London Autumn 2017 sees the publication of the 4th edition of Past Tense’s London Rebel History Calendar, with radical, subversive and inspiring anniversaries for every day of the year from London’s turbulent past… Who produces it?
