An irregular event which you probably weren't thinking of attending on Saturday because you'd never heard about it but might find interesting especially if you're the sort of person who likes London local history (which, if you're reading this blog, you probably are):London Maze 2008 It doesn't happen very often. The City of London organises its local history fair every so often, sort of every two years-ish, ocasionally, to an unpublished timetable. The last one was in 2006, in March, which isn't even a sensible fraction of a decade ago. But it was an event well worth attending, and I'm glad I spotted it was on. The London Maze always takes place at the Guildhall, which is the seat of City government, but up at the historic end rather than in the nasty concrete office bit. It's like a village fair with stallholders laying out their wares in the community centre, except the hall is a medieval listed building and the wares are books and leaflets and historical documents. I can't guarantee what'll happen this year, but last time I got a free plastic bag and filled it with paraphenalia from such august bodies as the London Topographical Society, the East London History Society, Barking & Dagenham Heritage Services, the London and Middlesex Archaeological Society, the Association of London Pumping Heritage Attractions and the Family & Community Historical Research Society. Those sort of stallholders - committed, passionate and most definitely local. Attendees at the last event also enjoyed free admission to the Guildhall Art Gallery, plus the opportunity to pop down to the basement and view theremains of London's Roman Amphitheatre. Hopefully Saturday's event will include all of that plus free walks, and talks, and... well, you already know whether or not you might be interested. And I think you might.
