Sounds a good do! I am too far away and have other plans now but would be up for it given enough notice in future.

Forgot to add - I used to go in a pub near canary Wharf called the North Pole. That would be a good place for a sing if I remember rightly. Is it still there?

Have a good un, mateys. Just got back from there to Yorkshire. Pity it wasn't on this week.

Best wishes from Steve Gardham and Spare Hands

The organisers of the festival were trying to find local pubs that would welcome a group of thirsty shanty singers - without success! The North Pole, it would appear, closed around 2014/2015 and was one of the last remaining "traditional" pubs in the area. The new breed of pubs that do remain seem to cater only for tourists and the "well-heeled city-types". Not a proper boozer amongst them! The Wetherspoons pub next door to the museum was very interested but it does not have a music licence. Sad times.

Definitely no decent pubs round there, or in the "docklands" bit of the east end. Some that are good 'of their sort' if that's what you like. Greenwich, a couple of stops on the DLR, has some fairly decent and music friendly pubs; Stratford has a couple, away from the ghastly canteen smelling Westfield, but unless you pay for parking in a secure car park, expect a broken window on your return to the car.

Sad news about the North Pole. Staggered out of there many a time on my way back to the hotel when I was working in the area! I used to go to one somewhere in Stratford as well. Bit too far I guess.

Enjoy it anyway.

The Museum of London, Docklands is an absolute must for anyone interested in the history of that area. We were fortunate to visit when the section dealing with the construction and archaeology of "Crossrail" was on show. Quite astonishing.
