I arrived early at the Barking Learning Centre not just because it was situated in Barking and therefore awesome but also because I had been offered a free massage at The Bath House which is fricking inside the library.
I mean does your local library have a spa inside it complete with sauna? I didn't think so - I told you Barking was awesome.
And so was my audience and the librarians who plied me with a mound of biscuits and gave me a very sturdy lectern on which I leaned all the way through.
So remember if you want to broaden your mind and relax your back then the Barking Learning Centre is the place to go.
