On Aprils Fools day an interesting(?) street party will take place in London… The theme is based on the 4 horsmen of the Apocalipse!
G20 Meltdown calls for as many people as possible to join us for Banquet at the Bank, bring food, fun and games to share – a very rare delicacy will be served, bankers brains! If you want to Eat the Bankers join the Silver horse in a zombie block!
