There's a shop underneath London Bridge station that sells TAB. No sure if it's clear or not as it's in a can!

Do you happen to know when that exhibition will end as I fancy visiting it?

Re: Back to the Future - UK cinema release!

Saw this yesterday afternoon. Awesome. Really enjoyed it on the big screen, I hope to see more of these older films get shown again in Cinemas. As there are no production costs or anything to make surely it's only the Cinemas that need to see some kind of profit and I wouldn't have that they would ...

And yes, it was a great experience to see a classic like this in the cinema, especially having not been messed ...

Re: Hastings Pier burns down

Nooooooooooooooo, that is really really bad news, its fairly close to me, they were trying to do a save the pier campaign, gotta be an insurance job.

Hastings Pier burns down

Hastings Pier has burned down which adds to a long list of other seaside piers that have also met this fate. :( http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-sussex-11473688 The last time I went there was about ten years ago. It's a bit sad as they had some old school arcade machines (including an original B...

At the annual Classic Motor Show at the Birmingham NEC in November, there is always a stall that sells classic car stereos.

Re: Food/Drink from the past

Must have been a trial product that bombed or something. A couple of years ago Kelloggs brought out an ...
