A great part of working in Covent Garden is the lunchtime exploration. I headed down to St Paul’s Church with my lunch and watched the street performers. I’m slowly learning the routines, even when the act varies, they all consist of the same structure. It’s quite interesting to see everyday.

So let’s begin: Gather a crowd, spend twenty minutes building up to a performance, grab a child to help you out, pay him ¬£5 for his help, explain it’s only fair he gets paid for his good job, explain you do this as your job too so also need paying, big finish, collect money. Simples! Now I just need to learn how to get out of a straight jacket in front of 50 odd people…

I think I’ll stick to graphic design.
