I was busy this morning so it was nearly 4pm by the time I got to Hyde Park where a large crowd was gathered near Speaker’s Corner for 420 London 2012. I heard reggae and followed my ears to find “The Bigger Society Soundsystem” which had been brought by the same guy who took a larger version of it along last year. There had been some heavy showers and there were a lot of cold wet people standing around, which made the turnout all the more impressive. Just as I was about to load a pipe the rain came down again but luckily I had thought to pack a tarp to shelter under and the shower was over by the time the big blaze up happened at twenty past four. I wandered round in a bit of a daze for another hour or so before the sky darkened again at which point I packed up and cycled back to Kings Cross, trying to stay ahead of the rain. Since I wasn’t there for long I don’t have much to report but I thought it was worth blogging. Hopefully the weather will be kinder next year.
