LDN Event Listings: April

I love spring - my wallet doesn't. I know a lot of the people involved in these events and I'm sorry I can't put up everyone's flyers, as you can see that would take over the entire blog, (apart from Writers Block who shot a trailer, props for that)! I'll probably have to add to this and re-post it later in the month but for now- let's go.
