Day 16: London

Welcome

Yesterday we spent the day in London doing tasks such as laundry, before heading to Charing Cross for our show at Heaven.


I started my day with a run along the Regent’s Canal where I was happy to witness Sturt’s Lock in action.

I don’t know how anyone could give it less than 5 stars but here is what one Google user had to say.

I ran under the Whitmore Bridge, a brick arch bridge with a Google rating of five stars from one review. I couldn’t find any information on the bridge except that it was probably constructed in the early 19th century when the Regent’s Canal was built. If anyone has any knowledge to share about the Whitmore Bridge please get in touch!

I went for breakfast with my cousin William at The Dusty Knuckle Bakery in Dalston, where I enjoyed a spiced lamb shoulder sandwhich.

In the afternoon we headed to venue for load in and I assisted Tristan in a very tight van park.

Our show was at Heaven, a venue located underneath Charing Cross Station. It opened in 1979 and was the first gay superclub in the UK, helping to bring gay clubbing into the mainstream and heavily influencing London’s nightlife.

It was our biggest headline show to date, and we were thrilled to play to a sold-out room of 1000. The lighting and sound staff were stone-cold pros and made us look and sound really good.

I would like to take the opportunity to feature a few photos from the evening from our good friend Dani Bolton who is a Kiwi photographer based in London. You can check her out on instagram.

We came back to the green room after the show to find a huge bottle of champagne that our managers George, Apple, and Jake had secretly organised. Thanks team, we do love you madly.

Beth of the day goes to Liz for doing everyone’s laundry, for safe champagne opening, and for heading straight out to deal with a hectic merch table after the set, without even taking a breather.

Congratulations Liz on your Beth of the day hat trick!
