A four day bank holiday weekend then. Quite a time to fill, but tomorrow’s got some goodness in it, whatever the weather does.
First up, it’s the first of the free admission days for the Crimes of Passion RWA show. Apparently it’s already broken all sorts of attendance records for a show at the RWA, and is still really busy. So if you fancy a carefree wander round it tomorrow, get there early, cos it could be packed again. It’s open from 10am to 5:30pm.
Also, tomorrow evening down at the Cube (who definitely weren’t anything to do with the recent Banksy red paint affair, so be nice to them) there’s a night on tying in with the RWA show.In fact, there are a few Crimes of Passion night on at the Cube over the next few days, but tomorrow night’s the biggy. Here’s the chat from the Crimes of Passion site;
Saturday 11th April – 8pm-late
