Lots of fun things coming up .Starting off with Brits in LA and LLoyds/TSB British Breakfast Club. For all the details please click on the link

Wednesday we have the Pub Quiz at Bar Lubitsch. This is going to be a busy event by the looks of things, so come early and if you are teamless, join one on the night. No entry fee, just meant to be lots of fun. Free round of drinks for the winning team. And walk of shame for the losers! Questions will be a mix of US and British, so will be fair for everyone.

COACHELLA is this weekend. I didn't organise tickets on time so am missing out this year :( Looks like a fantastic line up. Lots of great British acts including The Chemical Brothers, Duran Duran and the lovely Eliza Doolittle. Craig is organising a Brit party at his house in Palm Springs so if you are out there drop him a line at Craig@Britsin.LA Don't forget your sunscreen as will be scorching.

ROYAL WEDDING is at the end of the month too (as I am sure you all know!) My sister will actually be filming it from inside the Abbey for the BBC! We have decided to have a live viewing party, as it is no fun watching a recording. Watch this space for all the details...... If you want any Royal Wedding memorabilia pop in to OH FANCY THAT! I heard they just got Twiglets in too!

RENAISSANCE PLEASURE FAIRE is on until May 22nd. This looks completely bonkers. Jousting competitions and over 1500 performers recreating Shakespearian England. Apparently Queen Elizabeth I is in attendance too! Fun for kids and great for adults (especially ones who enjoy British Ale) Click here for all the info Perhaps we should organise a Brits in LA trip.....?
