COMEDY: Bullshit London
Information is great and all, but do you ever get the feeling that it’s all a bit too, y’know, informative? Like you’re in danger of learning stuff? Well fear not, for on this weekly comedy walking tour of the Southbank and Whitehall – which tells an alternative history of London also known as ‘BS’ – there is no danger of any education going on. Because why would you want facts when you can hear tales of exploding monarchs and mermaids, see ‘tributes of phallic emotion’ in the skyline or visit the ‘famous bin that Hugh Grant got off with in Love Actually’? Quite.
Every Thursday, 7pm; £10 Starts outside St Paul’s Cathedral, EC4M 8AD bullshitlondon.com
