Go local: Olympic Legacy Event

Join In is the Olympic legacy charity for volunteering, and this event commemorates the team who gave up their time to make last summer’s Games such a success. It also aims to inspire a new legion to get out there and get involved in the future, too.

There will be performances from guitar-wielding boyband McFly and The Feeling. Join In patron and serial marathon runner, comedian Eddie Izzard, will be on hand with a special Olympics-themed set, and Lord Coe and Mayor muppet Boris Johnson will be in attendance as well. 

£15, July 19, from 1.30pm

I Love Lists

Do you fastidiously write lists of the things you need to do today? The things to achieve before you’re 30? The people you need to get one over again for past indiscretions? The world’s first list-making night, hosted by Musical Bingo’s Jess Indeedy, is for all those who see lists as a fun and necessary life skill.
