To help in finding local events near you within the remit of the events guide I maintain, the front page of the website now comes with added map goodness.

Basically, it marks all the events that are happening today, colour coded to indicate if they are one-off or something that could be done another day if you prefer.

It only shows fixed locations or guided walks where I know the start point. A lot of guided walks have “meeting point to be confirmed later”, which means I can’t add them to the map.

Also I may be able later to mark the rough routes of road/rail/river events on the map, but that needs more database magic to be applied so will have to wait a while until I work out what spells to cast on the webserver.

Hopefully it helps, and so long as there aren’t howls of anguish, then I’ll add it to a select few other pages later.

In the meantime, have a look here – towards the bottom of the front page.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
