Monday 19 January
7pm at The Horse & Stables, 122-124 Westminster Bridge Road;

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.

on East Street. Discover more about how Victorian and
Edwardian Southwark left an indelible mark on the life and
work of one of the most important figures in the history of
cinema.

WHERE'S MY MUMMY?: HUNTING MUMMIES IN THE BRITISH BRONZE AGE
Wednesday 21 January
7pm at The Old King's Head, Kings Head Yard, 45-49 Borough
High Street; free; donations welcome
A PubSci event. Dr Tom Booth from the Natural History Museum
will be talking about the fascinating detective work behind
a 4,000 year old mummy mystery. In 2005 a team of
archaeologists discovered evidence which suggested that
around 4000 years ago, the bodies of a man and a woman were
mummified and buried at a Bronze Age settlement in the Outer
Hebrides of Scotland. Further investigation revealed that
both bodies had been reassembled out of the preserved
anatomical parts of at least three people. Was preservation
and curation of the dead a widespread practice in Britain
during the Bronze Age?

donations on the
This special documentary chronicles the life and music of
the legendary New Orleans pianist James Booker, the man Dr
John described as "the best black, gay, one-eyed junkie
piano genius New Orleans has ever produced." A brilliant
pianist, his eccentricities and showmanship belied a life of
struggle, prejudice, and isolation. Illustrated with
never-before-seen concert footage, rare personal photos and
exclusive interviews the film paints a portrait of this
overlooked genius. The film's director, Lily Keber, will be
available for a question and answer session after the film.
There is no fixed ticket price, though donations would be
welcome. All proceeds will go towards the cost of music
licensing for the film, without which it will not be
possible to distribute the film more widely.
