See Camden's answer to the Fourth Plinth

Whilst Murdoch and Gormley pump out rejection notes to people who love London and would have liked to have had a go on the plinth (not bitter), over in Camden local residents have put together an altogether more sedate and pleasant alternative at 22 Chalk Farm Road, NW1.

Locals Russell Loughlan, Charlotte Haigh and Stephen Emms have put a bench in C22, a disused shop on Chalk Farm Road, this week to run as an installation called Tales From A Park Bench. Inspired by Bench Marks, Time Out's exploration of London's benches and their inscriptions, and the bench is open to everyone, every evening to perform however they want, free from the limitations of time limits, selection processes or emails from Gormley.

Tales From A Park Bench began yesterday and runs until 9th August from 1pm until 8pm Daily. If you want to take part, find them on Twitter at twitter.com/talesfromapark, email them on talesfromaparkbench at googlemail.com or just pop along.
