The Tweed Run: Saturday 9th April 2011

Ladies, Gentlemen,
The third annual 2011 London Tweed Run will be held on 9 April. This friendly 10 mile jaunt around the Capital will take in London’s famous sites –– including St Paul’s, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Savile Row –– with a stop for a spot of tea, and ending with a bit of a knees-up out Shoreditch way.
The ride will benefit Bikes4Africa, our designated charity. There’ll be more announcements as the day gets closer. I do hope you can make it.

The Culture Club Launch (05th April 2011)

The Culture Club launch was a resounding success Tuesday night, held at Bar 19:20,  with cupcakes from The  Indulgent Sugar Plum and a storming setlist from DJ, Mr Gizmo.
Guests also enjoyed goodie bags  courtesy of the National Portrait Gallery, Foto8, Barbican, Ritzy Cinema, Graze, and indie filmmakers Desperate Optimists.
If you couldn’t make it down, click here to tune into the Spotify playlist compiled by the good DJ himself, and if you want to know more about the culture club check out the website

The Culture Club

The Culture Club was born out of a number of things.
  • Curiosity – There’s loads going on in London, but what, where and when?  Hmmmm?
  • A desire to meet new people
  • Empathy for newcomers to London (especially those from another country who,  within a week, were brainstorming the quickest and most efficient way to get back home because of A) an altercation on the Tube B) the horror of Oxford Street C) You got robbed D) All of the above)
  • The thrill of new, fun experiences. Like the ones you get in my favourite city of all time, NYC.
So  The Culture Club is a members-only social club for people who:
  • A) want  to meet genuinely cool people
  • B)  want to enjoy what the London has to offer and try out new experiences
  • C) Fancy a break from online socialising in favour of  ”real-life” socializing
It started in September 2010, and within 3 months nearly 300 people had signed up to the free membership. Best bit is, They do all the hard work for you; organising socials, meet-ups and events,  sending out invitations which go directly into your e-mail inbox, sourcing great hookups and members benefits likemoney-saving discounts, competitions, special offers, etc.
