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

Singing/socialising event - a pub 'jam session' but instead

cappella masterpieces from the 16th century by Palestrina,
Victoria and others. Anyone who can read music and wants to
take part should download the sheet music from the PDtP
website; anyone who doesn't read music is still welcome to
come along and listen. No audition, no rehearsal, no
performance; just people in a pub making music. This session
will be the last of the season before a summer break.

Bring your bike to Lambeth's team of professional mechanics
who will look it over and check tyres, brakes, gears etc. If
it needs fixing and they can do it in the allotted time they
will, free of charge. If there is a bigger problem they will
tell you what is wrong so you can take your bike to the
nearest independent bike shop and get it fixed there. The
event will also feature drivers from Veolia and FM Conways
with their HGVs talking to you about blind spots and how to
safely share the road with big vehicles. And not only all
that but the police will also be at many events to security
mark your bike and place it on BikeRegister.com. Please
email cycling@lambeth.gov.uk at least a day before to check
if security marking is taking place at your chosen Dr Bike
event.
