POLYPHONY DOWN THE PUB
Monday 27 October
7pm at The Horse & Stables, 122-124 Westminster Bridge Road
Experimental singing/socialising event - a pub 'jam' session
but instead of playing folk music or jazz, people turn up to
sing a cappella masterpieces from the 16th century by
Palestrina, Victoria and others. No audition, no rehearsal,
no performance; just people in a pub making music. Anyone
who can read music and wants to take part should download
the sheet music from Facebook; anyone who can't read music
is still welcome to come along and listen.

BONHAMS VETERAN CAR RUN
Sunday 2 November
at Westminster Bridge; free
See 500+ veteran cars - up to 117 years old - pass through
the streets of North Lambeth. A celebration of the
Emancipation Run held in 1896. Thirty vehicles travelled the
60-miles from London to Brighton to mark the passing into
law of the Light Locomotives Act which raised the speed
limit from 4mph to 14mph and did away with the requirement
for a person to walk in front of a vehicle waving a red flag
to warn other road users. The first reenactment was in 1927
and the LBVCR has been held every year except during World
War II and in 1947 due to fuel rationing. Route crosses
Westminster Bridge then via Westminster Bridge Road and
Kennington Road.
