London's a big place. I have a friend in Plaistow who is a box player.

How about 'go and watch a Morris side'?
Watching people like Ian Dedic or Jimbo both of this parish play for Hammersmith and watching them play is great in itself. Both are amazing players.
You can watch whilst simply being part of an audience, innocently 'walking by...'
Just a thought.

I live in the bit just north of Chesterfield, but I don't suppose that's much help.

Where is this London of which you speak? Is it near Belgium?

Sounds to me as if Brickbuilt is prepared to travel. Still curious as to location though, as that's my home town - spent 45 years there, Stepney and Catford.
