I will be off down to my allotment early tomorrow to harvest globe artichokes, raspberries and black currants in preparation for Sunday afternoon's Brent Stop the War and Brent PSC's summer garden party in Willesden Green.
The fund-raiser takes place in a beautiful garden and the weather forecast is good. Apart from delicious food and a bar, entertainment is also provided by top names including classical guitarist Ahmed Dickinson (above). Other entertainers include Camilla Cancantata, queen of the squeeze box; Jean Marc, story teller; Alan Johnson, folk singer and of course Ian Saville, socialist magician.
It is not too late to attend the garden party which starts at 5pm and finishes at 10pm. Ring Sarah Cox on07951 084 101 or e-mail her firstname.lastname@example.org for tickets.
Tickets are £12 wage/£8 unwaged in advance and £15/£10 on the door.
