Last weekend Leeds had an overground /underground cultural experience. It was combined with the cultural side of the olympics. not quite sure about that last statement.
Anyway it really was an amazing event.It wasnt advertised and you just came across happenings.
There was a macabre band playing .. photos tomorrow ... and a young lad beside them chalking the pavement.

Marching proudly along, only to be squashed under foot by a passing pedestrian. Nice one.
I'm afraid that when I hear references to the cultural side of the Olympics my heart sinks and I mentally switch off. I have some uploads of the cultural side of the Jubilee to come some time... Wink

A bit disappointed here.
I read about your reference to a macabre band playing,
and I thought perhaps this is where Jedward and their bands bodies were found !!
