The London parks are amazing and free. Hampstead Heath is huge and very beautiful. Holland Park, a hidden gem, quite small compared to Hampstead Heath (or Epping Forest as mentioned before), but there is a Japanese Garden and a lovely café.

So now the freelondonlistings has closed and timeout's done a slightly disasterous (feel free to disagree) revamp of their search functions, where else is good for finding event listings in london?

Cheap/free London!

Seeing as my beloved is shortly to become a full-time Master’s student and therefore will be chronically skint for the next 12 months, I was wondering if people had any recommendations for free or cheap stuff to do in London, ‘cos I’m not bloody well paying for him (well, not all the time, anyway ;)).

Obviously there’s the big free-entry museums, but what other stuff do you recommend to do for little or no money (outside the bedroom, you dirty-minded people!). Any good cinema/theatre ticket schemes for students or the general public, for example? Or websites that are good for info on free stuff or providing special offers?

PS, mods – if people come up with good stuff could this potentially be a sticky? Might make a good resource for the many poor and destitute urbanites out there.

Stop fucking spamming your event all over the shop. You've already been pulled about it by the editor and I'm getting fucking pissed off too. Once more and I'm deleting every post and you're out of here....and I don't give a fuck about the free wine. I bet it's cheap rubbish anyway.

For the community lol.

No one is ever honest that the motivation is PR for their business. I bet they even convince themselves that their giving something back bullshit is why they are doing it.

Only 3 on Linzi's posts aren't related to her gallery. Get the feeling that she is just using the boards for advertising? Of course we do.

Pathetic its not a buisness Its an Art Event put on by Artists and crafts people for the community to enjoy, it lifts the depression of the recession and Art is upliting. There is nothing to be profited by it except for the odd sale for a Local Artist or crafts person.. Before you start to put it down please come and see it and then criticise..

I liked the look of the urban edge event but like Mrs M the spamming for it has got on my tits now.
All I am doing is trying to make awareness of a free event for the local artists and crafts people who participate and make a great day for the community that visit.. If that is spamming then I apologise I am only doing my best..

You're not understanding what is being said to you. You do not need to post the same post over and over and over again to advertise your event. You can post one post and then people can ask specific questions which I'm sure you can then answer.

Nobody is suggesting the event is shite, people don't want to read the same post a million times. Post your poster and leave it at that.

You misunderstand. We aren't criticising the event, we are criticising your breathtaking abuse of a free community resource. Both the editor, me (and the community here) are cutting you a lot of slack as any other event so relentlessly spammed would be deleted...the ads for the event remain in spite of your arrogance.

I know you mean well but stop and think why you're beginning to piss people off and why that might stop people coming to your event.

I can only apologise for the misuse as i only posted once on this page as in answer to someone looking for a free event. if it went up more then once that was not my fault at the start I was not sure how it worked and just posted in a few diffeent forums... if other people have posted the event I can not control that.. And yes I do post a lot but this is not for any profit or benefit to myself it is just to get awareness for the public..

Urban Edge Gallery is not a business?
You are not an artist who sells paintings?
You don't have a website in the hope of attracting commissions?

This free event isn't going to be held at your gallery and thereby raise awareness of the existence of your gallery?

It is a pop up gallery not owned by me at all... It is owned by the Van rental who rent is to us artists at a cheap rate so we can hold the free event... Yes I am an Artist and do hope to sell but the event is not just about my Art... It is many participating Artists showing their works..

OK, this is the deal. I'll leave your spam up here because you aren't the only artist and it's unfair that your abuse of these boards affects them negatively but you're out of here. Don't fucking darken our doorstep again.

"The Trailer TV is a club night and guerilla show rolled into one showcasing talented up and coming artists alongside artists that have already made their mark on the scene. It is first for the underground music scene as we broadcast interviews, videos & sets all completely live from an old lorry trailer next to the Deptford creek, South East London."
We believe it is a unique opportunity for quality underground musicians to showcase their work and opinions in a fun and unpretentious environment. There is no guestlist, no bullshit and it's free to attend.

Past guests:
DJ Rashad & DJ Spinn, Rucspin, Slick Shoota, Troy Gunner, Jon1st, Rita Maia, Arkist, Kamikaze Space Programme, Raiden, Breton, Manni Dee, Mowgli, Khing Kang King, Fybe:oops:ne, Blacksmif, Owen Howells, El Prevost, Kwake Bass, Himan, Danglo...

Future guests:
Roots Manuva, Gang colours, Om Unit, Rick Grant, Last Japan, Eagle for Hands, Boxwork, Duct, Thefft

It's worth checking it out: https://www.facebook.com/TheTrailerTV

The venue is located behind the Big Red bus pizzeria.

We also managed to get you guys some deals on food and drinks. :) More info above !

Not events as such but I see walks have already been mentioned....The London Lopp and the Capital Ring are superb walks and are designed to be walked in small bite sized sections. A great way of discovering bits of town you never knew existed.

Open occasionally is the Crystal Palace Museum http://www.crystalpalacemuseum.org.uk/index.html

another off beat museum and one of my faves http://www.testingmuseum.org.uk/

Freebies...Waitrose give a free tea or coffee and paper to card holders.
