If you hark back to a simpler time before we all just tweeted and digitally poked each other, you should think about joining the News from Nowhere Club. This East London collective fosters fellowship and challenges the commercialism and isolation of modern life one day at a time. On Saturday January 14 they will turn their attention to the beauty of ale when Ron Andrews and Stuart Lascelles (from the East London Brewing company) will be talking about the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) and its progress over the years at The Epicentre in Leytonstone. Bring some food for the buffet and patiently wait for the ale and good times to flow. Future events include talks on guerilla gardening, fair trade and how to make a living as an artist craftsman. Life feels less isolated already.
