I know, I know, all rules of logic scream that I need a list for March first, but I intend to spend the majority of March studying (and crying in the bath), what with my exams looming ahead. On a brighter note, April looks very promising –
International Pillow Fight Day – Saturday 7th April,
3pm, Trafalgar Square. Bring a pillow. At the very least, this will be a great opportunity for some crazy photos.
Easter Sunday – Sunday 8th April,
gonna celebrate the return of Jesus, eat lots of chocolate and maybe even organise an Easter egg hunt. I know I’m not 10 anymore, but for the sake of all things holy, this is a national holiday after all! In short, it would be rude not to.
Vintage Fashion Fair – Sunday 15th April,
at in Primrose Hill. I missed all the previous ones, so this is a MUST! It’s £3 entry, but given the assortment and quality of clothes, it’s well worth it! Doors open at 11am and there are refreshments and nibbles provided at reasonable prices. Best way to spend a Sunday afternoon EVER (particularly if it’s raining).
Alternative Fashion Week – Monday 16th – Saturday 21st April,
at Spitalfields Market. By the time exams roll around, I will be a poor, broken woman.
Kony 2012 – Friday 20th April, so today Jason Russell had a meltdown. Details available here. Does this add more fuel to the fire? Discuss.
World Book Night – Monday 23rd April, what happens after World Book Day has passed (1st March)? What else is there to do for the timid, yet persistent, underground literary community? Worry not, fellow bookworms; World Book Night is nigh! To spread my love for literature, I will personally be handing out free copies of The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho in and around the LSE. Unfortunately, I was only given 30 copies by Waterstones (there’s a set number), so if you want a copy, be sure to find me sooner rather than later on the day!
St George’s Day/ Shakespeare’s Birthday celebrations – Monday 23rd April, an excuse for me to get my drink oooon. Suggestions for venues welcome.
Les Miserables – Tuesday 24th April, tickets already bought (THANK GOODNESS, I have to stop spending money). Going with the LSE Literature Society for an evening performance at the Queen’s theatre and some real thespian goodness. I managed to snab amazing stalls seats for the group booking, so great view guaranteed!
of Montreal at KOKO – Wednesday 25th April, I want to go so bad, it hurts a little. If I behave well and do my revision, I might…however must prioritise- Vintage sales will of course come first on my list of necessities.
Molotov Jukebox at Station Sessions in Kings Cross – 30th April, if you’re around Kings Cross station at 1ish, stop by and have a listen. If you’re not, shift your appointments around to make sure you are; I saw these guys last year at Cable and their gig was one of the best I’d ever been to (albeit being completely free).
