On Saturday, I decided to skip a week at the awesome Oval Farmers' Market, which you must visit if you haven't because the food is good, prices reasonable, stall-holders friendly and it involves considerable less effort than trekking up to Borough! I dared to leave Kennington, a mistake, considering that I was then unavailable to investigate Tweets about trouble at the White Bear Theatre.
It must be stressed that trouble at the White Bear is very unusual. There are generally regulars drinking outside and people watching sport, but it's a pub in a residential area with a theatre attached. How rowdy can that be? Considerably, it seems:
Does anybody know what happened? Were there any witnesses? Was it planned?
