Yo Illo’s April Meetup

Well, the weather this month hasn’t quite carried on in the way that we’d have hoped, has it? Of course there are still a couple of weeks for it to change, but for now I’d say it’s still a little too cold to move back to outdoor seating, so once again we’ll be at our regular winter haunt, The Old Thameside.

We’ll be meeting a little later in the month this time, so that we avoid any extra crowds in London for the Easter holidays (and help out those of you with kids!). Plus there doesn’t seem to be any football on that night, so we’ll actually be able to hear each other, unlike last month!

The pub is just the other side of Borough Market, a few minutes’ walk from London Bridge. If you get there and can’t find us (we should be downstairs), then keep an eye on the @yoillo feed, or send me a tweet and I’ll try to find you.

  • Secret 7″

    Sat 19 April, 2014

    Secret 7″ is an annual event that combines music and art for a good cause. We take 7 tracks from 7 of the best-known musicians around and press each one 100 times to 7″ vinyl. We then invite creatives from around the world to interpret the tracks in their own style, resulting in a one-of-a-kind sleeve for every 7”.
