Time Bank Thursdays @ London Bike Kitchen
London Bike Kitchen are offering TWTB members the opportunity to pay for drop in sessions with time credits.
From 1pm - 9pm every Thursday you can bring your bike along and get an hour in the workshop for one time credit.
The London Bike Kitchen is an open DIY workshop where you can work on your own bike instead of giving it to someone else. We’re here to:
a) Promote self-reliance and confidence through education
b) Make cycling accessible and affordable
c) Get more people of all backgrounds on bicycles
We have a full tool library, mechanics on hand to help and courses to build skills so that you can learn how to take care of your sweet two-wheeled machine.
Feel free to drop in any Thursday and explain you're part of TWTB - no need to book in beforehand.
Find out more about London Bike Kitchen here: http://lbk.org.uk/

Macbeth of Fire and Ice - 30th Oct - 13th Nov
Macbeth of Fire and Ice is a fast paced, high energy and dynamic telling of the story of Macbeth, influenced by Norse mythology. The raw brutality of the Vikings, the Valkyries legendary powers of persuasion, a mystic forest covered in Nordic lights, earth incessantly bubbling, spewing volcanic eruptions and hissing hot springs make Macbeth of Fire and Ice.
Lizzie Siddal - 20th November to 4th December
Lizzie Siddal is a new play that tells the dramatic story of the woman who was ‘Ophelia’ in Millais' famous painting. It charts her dazzling trajectory from model to lover to artist, to a tragic figure in her own right.
The Shape of Things - 27th November - 11th December
At the edge of obsession, in the bleakest shades of morality, and with blistering and gut-wrenching consequences, join two girls and two guys as they get screwed, and screwed over, in this sometimes heart-breaking, sometimes hilarious play that examines the lengths we can go to for acceptance, the lies we can tell in our most intimate moments, and the meaning of art.
If you need a singer or a trumpet player for some good music i can help.
Also if you would like a performace from a band, with others we play socially concious gypsy folk, and can play other genres, and will happily play music for hours

Maxine's Zumba Classes
Maxine’s offering places in her zumba classes for time credits.
The classes are held every Wednesday evening at 7.30pm and Saturday morning at 10.00am at The Victoria Park Baptist Church, 186 Grove Road, E3 5TG.
Maxine says: “If you never thought exercise could be fun, come to one of my classes and I will change your mind. I have tried and tested every class in the gym from Aerobics to Yoga, done them all. There’s nothing like Zumba and there is no other class like mine. Every class is fun, the hour passes in a flash and before you know it you’ve burnt off 800 calories or so and you’ve got a great big smile on your face.”
There are limited places available per class so get in touch beforehand if you want to go along.
The Heretic's Guide to Global Finance
I'm exchanging my new book The Heretic's Guide to Global Finance: Hacking the Future of Money for a variety of alternative currencies, including time. It's published by Pluto Press, and is a guide to exploring, jamming and rewiring the global financial system. It's been endorsed by Ha-Joon Chang of Cambridge University, Bill McKibben of 350.org, and Tony Greenham of the New Economics Foundation. Check it out!
Pricing a book in time is an interesting process, but after some calculations I've settled on 2 hours. It comes signed, with a personal note :)
I'm a gardening enthusiast without a garden who's desperate to get my hands in the soil more often. If you need any help in this area, pick me!
Need a singer/backing singer?
I don't have much time to write and perform my own music these days, but if your act is in need of a voice, I can step in. I've an alto/soprano range and fairly broad knowledge of music from all eras.
I've plenty of experience looking after children from the ages of one and a half to fourteen. Love spending time outside or inside getting involved in games, crafts, reading or good old movie indulgence. I've also got two years' experience working with secondary school children with learning and behavioural needs, so can offer some time to any parents looking for a break, or for a change of company for their children with specific requirements.

Basic Accountancy Help
Hi, I am happy to help you out with your basic accounting needs. I can make spreadsheets for you and show you how to make them as well if you would like. Things I would normally do are profit and loss sheets and reciept generators but really will have a look at anything, I studied accounting as part of my degree and have helped a few friends out in the past with thier businesses.
I have 2 years' experience in interviewing and reviewing CVs from working as a recruitment consultant for arts organisations. This has been predominantly front of house and entry level positions but I would be able to apply these skills up to management level in the arts sector and entry level in other sectors, including retail, service industry, and graduate jobs. I am happy to share my knowledge and advise on important CV content, layout, do's and dont's; I am also willing to research topics to be able to help in your search for a job.
This is a completely confidential service and details would be secure. I am aware of my own knowledge and capabilities and I would not be prepared to offer advice in an unknown field, so if you are in doubt as to whether I can help then get in touch and I will give an honest response.
