Get revenge on your friends for running off to the Big Chill by going to the Little London Fields free festival, spending less money than them and having much more fun. There’s loads of bands, some of them might even be quite good, and an artists area where you can admire the work of local artists and designers, and there are even food stalls! They aren’t free, but you can’t have everything.
