larkin about and decembers derive

dearest friends and flaneurs

forgive the brevity of this communique (some may breathe a sigh of relief of course) but my internet is broken and (not connected) i am about to bury myself in flour and chocolate

the lrm are delighted to be taking part in larkin about this saturday (december 5th) at the green room - a day dedicated to turning the streets into a playground see http://www.greenroomarts.org/archive/events/larkin%E2%80%99-about/ or the rather more up to date facebook group. they still need volunteers to help with some of the games others have designed so please let them know if you would like to take on that role.

for our contribution the lrm have combined three of our greatest loves - manchester, cartography and vegan cake - to create, yes, a giant cake map of manchester. please come and visit us in the bar area from 12 noon until we've discovered the edible heart of our city. although tickets are required for the rest of the festival it is free to pop in and enjoy a sweet treat with us

our scrumptious diorama is also an almost scientific consultation tool: we want folk to tell us why the scoff the buildings they do - is it love and a desire to consume glory or hate and a drive to destroy. Perhaps its just your curious about what urbis tastes like....

these shenanigans will shape this months first sunday derive. we will be exploring the passions that shape our city and the relationship between psychogeography and cake. we'll be meeting 2pm on sunday (december 6th) in the downstairs bar of the cornerhouse on oxford road and it would be splendid to see you there

if you need any more information about any of the above, or want to join our creative bakeathon tomorrow night please DON'T email (due to those unforeseen technical problems but please call / text 07974929589

glittery love and frosting
