Decendents of the Tolpuddle Martyr's are regulars at the Tolpuddle Festival in Dorset each year. At King's Cross this year they unveiled a brand new banner depicting their family tree.

The Caledonian Road in North London came alight this afternoon when over 500 people marched down to the beat of our own Cuban Dance Band. Watch this space next week for photos and reports of comedy night, Raised Voices, film night and the very, very big day starting at Caledonian Park and ending up with the perfect English afternoon out – in the true sense of the mixed race term – at Edward Square today 25 April 2009. We will report in full next week. What a great day.

Meanwhile rain showers are forecast for Saturday – although of course that is just not going to happen – and your TolpuddleKX organisers are madly hunting down umbrellas to hand out to Saturday’s festival masses!!!
