London Lit Crawl

Free
San Francisco-born Lit Crawl makes its European debut in the form of an entire literary festival packed into a single evening's raucous ramble through the bookshops, pubs and cafés of Covent Garden and Soho. From 8pm to 9pm, the Café at Foyles plays host to young poets and emerging short-story writers, in a lively session curated and presented by White Review editors Jacques Testard and Benjamin Eastham. After that, it's time to ramble. It's free but make sure you register in advance.
