The local socialist café Firebox is holding a walking tour celebrating the radical history of the area this Saturday. Marx and Lenin were both said to have been partial to a drink in the Water Rats on Gray’s Inn Road after a studious day in the British Library.

The tour will be guided by Reuben Bard-Rosenberg, a history PhD student at King’s College London and enthusiast of English radical history.

Meet at Firebox (Cromer Street) at 12 noon on Saturday 16 August – cost of tour £4 on arrival. Booking essential. Places are limited, to book text 07581 418 837 or email info@fireboxlondon.net

    Ah, The Water Rats.

  2. Celebration!? What a bunch of fools. Might as well as go pay homage to Hitler (another radical socialist). Things like this disgust me about the fools in my local area.
