It’s been almost a whole day since we’ve mentioned the tube’s 150th anniversary, and we feel anxious. The Bishopsgate Institute shares our enthusiasm for the Underground’s landmark birthday and is hosting a series of events called ‘Underground London’. There will be walking tours, talks, debates and discussions covering a wealth of topics such as ethics on the Underground, lost rivers, writing the psychogeology of London, secret stories of east London, uncovering the cemeteries of London, British lesbian nightlife and much more. If you can make it there tonight, you will learn all about A Passenger’s History of the Tube  and you’ll leave more clued up on such enigmas as why the Victoria line is so hot, whether it is possible to go all around the Circle line and other areas of social interest concerning the tube.
