      Proms, nice idea! Never been. Difficult to get tickets?

      Not bothered about a manga exhibition. We eat 2nd hand manga where I live.

              Still tix to be had from the Royal Albert Hall site for Olivier Latry and Pappano/DiDonato doing Strauss's Alpine Symphony. None for the Mozart Requiem.

              Suggests the really popular pieces may be agency only, but you can still see some World class stuff without going to touts.

                Thanks for the suggestions folks. I looked at the list of the Proms & couldn't find anything of interest. The gig at Oto might be a goer, and the 2 exhibitions also look good.

                Cheers

                Turbo

                    So far Turbo in London has:
                    - attended the Stanley Kubrick exhibition, which was good and could have spent the day there easily, loads of great Kubrick tat, like the typewriter from The Shining
                    - been to a free gig by Moon Panda at the Old Blue Last, which was great, but no donations box for the bands, so slightly worried they would not be paid ...
                    - eaten very nice curries & Ethiopian dinners
                    - been digging in Crystal Palace, and had very brief visits to Reckless & Sister Ray in Berwick St in horrible central Landin
                    - looted the local charity shops

                    and another week left to chill properly.

                        The Book & Record Bar in West Norwood is quite good if you're in that part of the World again?

                          Thanks, probably not going to happen on this visit. In Crystal Palace, I went to Haynes Lane Market (a bit meat & 2 veg but picked up some cheap 7s from circa 1978) and the basement record shop on Church Street (?), nothing there for me. Some lovely Egyptian jazz 7s but at 8 quid a pop, I left them there.
