Any folk want to get involved in a Loiterers event on the 17th Sept at lunchtime please get in touch via website e-mail.
Will be organising something to protest the proposed Public Space Protection Order that will make lying down in the street and sleeping in the street illegal.
As sold at the Trespass shows we have two new stickers in the store. “Trespassers Welcome” in green on white vinyl at 100mm square and “Loitering in Progress” in red on white vinyl is 235mm x 100mm for those official places where such signs are needed. Buy one or 3 or more at a discounted price.
Ever since I was allowed out I have walked through London ; across common to school, late night treks to Chelsea Bridge to stare into the Thames, marching down Park Lane or bustling to Wardour Street to see the Fall at the Marquee. I have always thought the city was a place for us to ramble and enjoy. I have always thought the city belonged to us. All of us. The mass. No matter what “they” did there would always places for us to play.
I am less convinced this is the case now, though more convinced than ever of the need to do so.
THE DATE: Saturday, 22nd August
THE TIME: Noon to 1pm
THE PLACE: The US Consulate , 3 Regent Terrace, Edinburgh EH75BW
THE EVENT: The protest banner project
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO? Turn up with a banner, be prepared to be photographed for our new loiterers project.

The Edinburgh Fringe is underway and Mark is performing the Trespass show nearly every day this month. Show starts at 5pm for an hour In the Dissection room at Summerhall. See the tour dates page for all future shows way out into 2016, there are still a few more to be confirmed but hopefully Mark is coming somewhere close to you.
In other news we have added the ability to pay by credit card in the merchandise store and you now have a choice of whether we use first or second class postage. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to make your life easier on the site.

New tour dates for March/April 2016 now on the Gigs page including Dublin, Glasgow and Barnard Castle. I doubt the sites have the tickets on sale yet but just so you know. Still about 6 dates left to confirm, will post here when they are definites.
For those who can travel down to London on the 2nd of August, very good comics performing a free open air show on the Thames footpath – Josie Long is one of them – details of the show, assembly point and what to bring will go out via email and @Loiterers
It promises to be a really good day.
Anyone wanting to do the RBS Way let me know and I will pass on all the info.
