London Meeting, Saturday, May 13, 2023

Venue Change: Due to the coronation on our regular date we have a venue change for this meeting, the meeting will be held at Covent Garden Dragon Hall  17 Stukeley Street, London WC2B 5LT

Speaking in May we have :

1st: Alexis Parrinder-Nicholls – Travelling with music: The power of music to navigate difficult situations and bring people together

Alexis has travelled with a guitar to over 30 countries, including Myanmar, Kazakhstan, Iraq, China, Senegal and The Gambia. These trips have often focussed around hitchhiking and exploring the most remote areas.

From jamming his way out of trouble with the Burmese police, to rapping at a wedding in a village not visited by foreigners for ninety years, a touch of music has often proven invaluable along the way.

Considering the music cultures in the different regions he’s visited, this talk will explore the role that music can play in traversing barriers, connecting people and generally being a force for good in the world.

2nd: Sharon Cunningham – Miss Honeyjam’s Mid-Life Cycle

Sharon is a mild mannered, mechanically challenged, middle aged school teacher who mostly likes sitting still. This is a talk about what happens when you watch too many YouTube videos about cycling during lockdown. It is about life at 15 mph, along the Rhine River, starting at its source, in Oberalppass in Switzerland and going all the way to Hoek van Holland, on a folding bike. By the end, you too will have all the information you need to plan your own cycle!
