What's happening at our Central London Conference Venues

Snow

Ever since snow was announced to fall in London this weekend, I had been anxiously waiting. Few things transport me – and many others with me – more efficiently back to childhood than the sight of a snow covered landscape. Add to that the magical decorative lights that are appearing all over the city and the sound of Christmas carols, and I almost believe in Santa Claus again! Therefore, big was...

This ended up being a lot more complicated than at first sight may seem. We have, almost every day, a certain amount of delicious, healthy and fresh food that we don’t want; others want delicious, healthy and fresh food, that they don’t have. The equation...
