Today marks the start of East Festival 2010! I hope you’re all as excited as we are here at VL Towers.
There’s been a few last-minute announcements. The always popular and very cool Song East, which involves a series of free music performances at various venues in East London, will now feature singer/songwriter Kami Thompson. Kami is the daughter of folk duo Richard and Linda Thompson and her music draws on these roots, while adding a modern rock sensibility.
East Festival also gives you the chance to walk in the footsteps of legendary engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel through the Thames Tunnel for the first time in 145 years! A new event, the Thames Tunnel Walkthrough and Underground Fancy Fair will be held just after East, but in conjuction with the festival.
