Finally! From midnight tonight, gay marriages can be performed legally for the first time in the UK. But how best to mark this occasion with dignity, respect and a recognition of what a civil rights milestone this is? Hmm… Let’s get Rick Wakeman to bash away at an organ (careful!) while Sandi Toksvig renews her vows in front of a big crowd! Oh no, we can’t: the Southbank Centre beat us to it with its Royal Festival Hall event ‘I Do to Equal Marriage: The Toksvigs Renew Their Vows’ (Saturday March 29, 11am). Damn. Oh well. Fingers crossed they don’t nab our plan to erect a purple inflatable cow beside the river. Wait, what’s that? Oh, come on!
