I am doing a couple of events over the weekend, details and links below:

Going for a Song.
£5. Time – 18:00, Saturday 2nd June. Venue – Ryan’s Bar

As the LP record celebrates its 70th birthday we join journalist, DJ, music promoter and author of Going for a Song, Garth Cartwright, and social historian and author of The Long-Player Goodbye, Travis Elborough, on a good old rummage through the secret history of the UK record shop.

Capital Chroniclers.
£5. Time – 15:00, Sunday 3rd June. Venue – Library Gallery

In an age when letter writing is dying out but our lives have never been more documented in blogs, Instagram and Facebook posts Travis Elborough (editor of the acclaimed Our History of the 20th Century: As Told in Diaries, Journals and Letters) and Margaret Willes (author of The Curious World of Samuel Pepys and John Evelyn) explore how diaries have illuminated London’s history and discuss what the social historians of the future might use to unravel life in our city in the early twenty-first century.
