The Government Relations & Public Affairs team, Isabelle, Maddy and myself headed to north London today for a relaxing away day at Mission: breakout in Kentish Town Road, NW5. This is one of the ‘escape rooms’ that have sprung up around town in recent months.
Based in a disused underground station, the premises are themed on World War II and code breaking in particular. I am pleased to say that we managed to find our way out with five minutes to spare of the allotted hour. We then walked to the Bull & Gate for lunch. Now a very comfortable bar and restaurant, where once a well-known grassroots music venue was established for years. We dined in the room that was the scene of my first solo gig in March 1989! (A ‘Hype’ all-dayer on a Bank Holiday Monday – Jesus Jones were also on the bill).
