    A group of families and friends of young people lost to knife crime have started an awareness campaign in Croydon with blue ribbons tied to fences, trees and sign posts. Look out for them.

    Also, if you’re willing to put up a few blue ribbons go to the Stop Knife Crime Facebook page and they’ll give you some.

    The South Norwood Woodcraft Folk put some up at South Norwood Lake the other day.

    I think you mean the "tall, tall tower with the crane on top", as my granddaughter calls it

    It is the hotel opposite the Whitgift Centre. How odd - it sounds like it is a huge festival with lots of stages across a wide area, but that is just the corner of a hotel on that busy road you can't cross except by going in the subway.

    I'm sad I wasn't asked to play. The only band I'm interested in is the lovely eggs, so I shall not be bothering.

    Yeah I had a look at ticket prices as they were playing, but the bill as a whole didn't feel worth it for the price. I might have gone if I'd got an earlybird ticket.

    Not sure why you pointed that out to me? It implies that it is a huge venue with room for several stages, but it is just a corner of a hotel... which is what I said... :hmm:

    Being part of a hotel doesn't sound very cool and creative to me.

    I'm pretty sure I've been to accountancy seminars there so I can assure you it's anything but cool.

    When I worked in Croydon we sometimes used to go for Friday team lunches at The Lansdowne's somewhat canteen-like dining room. It had a pretty good baked potato waggon IIRC. :D

    Yup, it's the last place I can imagine being cool and creative, but good luck to them!

    What price are they now? When I looked they were about £18. I wasn't keen on paying that for the eggs, but if there had been two decent bands and I wasn't packing for a holiday. . . Maybe.

    I think it was about £24 when I saw it advertised during the week (although it may well have ended up a few quid more after booming fees nonsense). I think early bird were £16 but were sold out.
