Catch us soon at Stoke Newington Literary Festival, but in the meantime as alter ego Half Day Holidays, join us for a Situationist-inspired wander to the Spring Bookie, Margate’s new literary festival, as we look for the beach not just metaphorically but literally too. Come to Margate 5th May for Psychogeography, books – or just fun. Solo travellers particularly encouraged.
