GARDEN BRIDGE LIARS' TOUR
Saturday 25 July
2pm; 5, 10 or 20
Liars' tours are interactive walks involving prizes and
forfeits. At each stop, alongside some entertaining London
stories, members of the tour read out two prepared scripts.
One of these is true, the other a plausible lie. The
audience then splits and, whilst those who spot the true
story get a token, those who choose the lie have to perform
a forfeit loosely based on the story told. 			 This is
a fundraising tour led by Chris Roberts to help with legal
costs to oppose the building of the Garden Bridge. There are
30 places and booking is essential and on a first come first
served basis either though paypal or by emailing
chris@londonstreettours.co.uk
