Thankyou thankyou thankyou

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. We will report in full next week. What a great day.

Radical Islington – the walk

Between 60 and 70 people arrived to take part in David Rosenberg’s three mile guided walk uncovering Islington’s rich radical history on Saturday 18th April. Very many thanks to Alastair Murray for the following photos of the walk.

  2. Dear Tolpuddle Team,
    I heard from a friend how fantastic the “Radical Islington” Walk was. I unfortunately couldn’t make it that day. I was wondering whether you were intending to do another one? That would be fantastic, because it brings the history of our borough alive. Please let me know or email me a contact address. Many thanks.
    I am looking forward coming on Saturday.
    Kind regards, Barbara
