We spend months getting a fab event organised at the Royal Institution including a NASA astronaut on 6 May.


Tell Time Out about it five times, six times in the months beforehand. Do they feature this? What do you think?


Next time we won't bother...

You've just basically listed the theater companies etc that you can buy expensive tickets from.


I was looking for inspiration and you usually come up trumps!

Number 6 would be great except the O2 Cable car is shut all weekend. Might want to update in case 1000s of keen Timeouters descend first on North Greenwich and then on the TO offices
