London Calling 2023

We’re Going on Tour!

One of the things we’d planned to do back when we were organising London Calling 2021 was the Tin Pan Alley Band Reunion Tour. For those who aren’t in London, the TPAB was a very fun geocache set as you might imagine, just off Denmark Street in London in the area nicknamed “Tin Pan Alley“. Sadly after it amassed a thousand favourite points, sadly it had to be archived in 2015 because of the redevelopment of the area.

So for 2021 we decided to take it on tour. We had those guitar picks made up (with thanks to LaserLogoShop over in Germany), we held our first event at the Museum of London where they were running a Clash exhibition at the time, and then our Chair headed off to Dubai for the first overseas tour date. It also turned out to be the only tour date, because well, Covid.

We’re excited to be bringing you in the run up to London Calling 2023, a series of tour events simply called “London Calling on Tour”. We’re not doing any special additional merchandise during the tours, although we’re going to make tour t-shirts available shortly before the Mega should anyone want one. These will have tour dates on the back as with a traditional tour t-shirt.

We’ll be sure to advertise the tour events on our social media, and we’ll be adding them to the London events calendar here. We’ve created a special category specially for these as unlike the other events listed on that calendar, these won’t necessarily be in London. They will, however, have the location in the title of the event, so you should be able to easily tell.

The first event listed is going to be on Saturday 18th June in Leigh-on-Sea, England, at the train station. Sure it’s not the United Arab Emirates, but it’s still near to a beach. So that counts! A couple of our committee members will be there, so come down and say hi and we’ll talk your heads off about our plans for 2023. Log a will attend here.
