Calling All Exhibitionists: This Weekend Is No Trousers On The Tube Day

Not wearing trousers is the new wearing trousers! Or, at least, is it for one day a year when tube-riders throw away their inhibitions and lose what the Americans mistakenly call pants.

The concept, from Holly Brooks and Rachel Wisson has already taken Brighton by storm, and now it’s en-route to London with every cocktail being chocolate based.
