The Pearly Kings and Queens of London @ Jubilee Hall
May 28 @ 10:30 am

Talk by John Waters.  John is the pearly king of Finsbury and a member of the London pearly kings and queens society (charity No 1091098). John will give a talk in part on the history of the city of London and also on the tradition of the pearly kings and queens of London and their charitable duty of representing an iconic tradition of the sight of the pearly kings and queens of London. The London pearly kings and queens give away an average of £24,000 each year to London and home counties charities.

If we are lucky John might even give us a couple of songs to bring back the past.
