The Oubliette rides out again...

Christmas is indeed coming but you can forget about throwing a penny in the old man’s hat; although the spirit remains the same, inflation has rendered this gesture of goodwill seriously scroogey. Indeed, it’s all about the giving, that warm feeling inside that money can’t buy: even so, it’s also the season of hope and though we expect it not, it’s always nice to get something in return. The Oubliette’s special seasonal event, therefore, is right on the money. Opening up the doors of the former Reader’s Digest HQ in Mayfair in signature style (squatting), they’ve also teamed up with The Connection at St. Martin’s to showcase the work of homeless artists. Plus, the Rambling Restaurant and the Colibri Quartet will be on hand all night to provide grub and music respectively - both completely gratis. Free food, a string quartet and charity; it feels so warm you could roast chestnuts on it...
