6.30pm at The Charles Lamb Public House and Kitchen, 16 Elia Street, Islington, London N1 8DE, FREE. Strange stories of a place you thought you knew… with Apples & Snakes musical storyteller Helen East. All kinds of creatures, helpful and hateful – from the light hearted laughing ghost of Lamb himself to the sorrowful ‘Bridge of Sighs’ – this night’s tales touch on the Other Side (and underside) of Islington life where even bricks and mortar might have opinions of their own… and 7pm ‘Words are Birds’ at Thornhill Primary School (£3 donation) – join pupils, Word2013 Poet-in-Residence Paul Lyalls and special guest John Hegley for an evening of poetry to launch the new Words are Birds book published by All Change. ‘Some really, really good stuff, good stuff really really. Really superb aren’t they-really’ John Hegley.
Plus at 4.30pm look out for All Change’s ‘B Voices’ photo exhibition outside the Business Design Centre, as it begins its tour across the borough.
