I will be discussing my psychogeographic surveying of the City of London’s bollards at this event at the City Centre on March 22nd:
The City Centre is excited to announce our inaugural City of London Showoff event in collaboration with comedian Steve Cross. We will be hearing from speakers and stand up acts including Charlotte Mykura, Philippa Jefferis, Hannah Cameron, Oliver Broadbent, Eleanor Morton and Ed Jefferson on a variety of topics from the City’s archiecture to the art of wandering and getting lost in the Square Mile.
Tickets are £13 which includes a free drink, it says here.

I put together a bluffer’s guide to whisky for excellent new journalism start-up The Overtake (sponsored by Cooper King, who make whisky and gin).
New Statesmen: Ed can you write something Europe’s most eligible princes to tie-in with the Prince Harry engagement story?
Ed: MARRY THE POPE.
