January News and Upcoming Events

We hope everyone is having a festive holiday season.

Today we welcome the first official day of winter and the shortest day of the year. For the next three months short days and cold nights will be the norm. However, we hope that doesn't keep you in as we’re excited to share lots with you in the new year.

Two Thousand Eighteen was  one of most successful years as we hosted 42 events over the last 12 months. With a wide range of programing, we hope we had something for everyone. In 2019, we’d love if on your list of resolutions joining us at an event was top of the list. If you made it to one thing in 2018, we’d be delighted if next year you joined us for two (or three, or four).

Following up from a busy December—including the special screening and UK premier of the award-winning documentary RBG, a rockin’ holiday party (complete with flowing drinks, great food, and piñatas), and a magical evening at the Royal Albert Hall as we celebrated a Hollywood Christmas—we’re kicking off January with a happy hour on the 9th of January with Cornell and closing the month with our annual Chinese New Year dinner.

Make sure you book for our events on the website and be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for new announcements.

Please also keep in touch. Reach out at [email protected] if you need anything.
