The next reality TV choir programme? I reckon I have an idea. How about an inter-London postcode competition, pitting north against south, East End against West? Trouble is, EC1 will have a bit of a head start. 10 years' head start, to be precise, since that is how long the...

At the end of my chat with Adam Gatehouse (see my earlier post, the Man from Auntie) I asked him to describe his favourite thing about LSO St Luke's. He said: 'I would say it’s an amalgam of things. That lovely openness and accessibility, the lightness. You feel that...

The folks at LSO St Luke's have various ways of trying to attract an audience to its lunchtime concerts. And, apart from getting me in to write on their blog, my favourite is the A board on the Old Street pavement outside. It's basically a pair of blackboards on which the day's...

Do they still call the Beeb 'Auntie'? Assuming they still call it the Beeb, that is. Anyway, day 6 at the LSO St Luke's 10th birthday festival is all about the very early days of the building's reincarnation as part education centre, part performance venue. Later this...

Whew, none of the Digital Technology Group's experiments took the roof off St Luke's. On the contrary, aided with projected visuals by Falmouth University digital arts students, 'Present. Curate. Collaborate. Innovate' was an engrossing hour of varied work. And it was work. I...

As well as head of marketing for the LSO Karen Cardy is director of LSO St Luke's, so it's probably a bit unfair to ask her to single out one favourite thing about the place. But I insist she's not allowed to choose all of it. 'It's actually when the LSO are in there - just to...

You know, I wouldn't be surprised to learn that the steeple at LSO St Luke's - is it a coincidence that it was the only part of the old church to have survived more or less in one piece while the rest fell into disrepair? - is some kind of weird aerial. Since the days of...
