I need a classroom!

My fundraising training class has taken off. I started teaching four weeks ago and now I have been asked to teach two more modules. Problem is one is in London. I would like to find a place to lead a fundraising training on consecutive Sundays in Watford between Watford High Street, Watford Junction and Watford Tube starting in September. Anyone have any ideas or alternatives I should consider? My classes are action learning so there are only handouts and homework not overheads.

Where to find a reasonably priced studio flat or room in London?

Where to find a reasonably priced studio flat or room in London? I've been looking for accommodation in London for quite some time now, but so far I've been unsuccessful (or.. unlucky) with searching in all the "usual" places (Gumtree.com, Findaproperty, flatland.co.uk etc.) In the meantime, I need to move within a couple of weeks, and can't seem to find anything in East Central London (close to City University) that is not super expensive and/or managed by a (what i prefer to call) "greedy agent"... very frustrating :/

I need dice dammit!

I need to buy/obtain at least one set of polyhedral dice (d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, d20 (pos d00)) by Wednesday morning (6th June BST). Problem: I will be travelling to London Tuesday morning (5th June), and it's a public holiday, so not many shops, especially specialist gaming shops, will be open. Is there an online shop that will deliver in less than 24 hours, or will there be an IRL shop open in London on Tuesday? Thanks!

Olympic fail.

I've just booked an international trip with a 3/4-day layover on the way home. Great, I think, I can spend some time in the city, get a cheap hotel, see a few friends for dinner and then get some sleep and a shower before my trip home - easy! Problem: after booking the trip, I realize I will be in London during the Olympics, and hotel prices have accordingly skyrocketed. I am on a grad student budget. Help me find a decent place to stay - ideally not in a shared room - that won't kill my budget? [more inside]
