Pub evening Wednesday 14 November: Paddington BID

Our next pub evening will be held on Wednesday 14 November and our speaker will be Kay Buxton, Chief Executive of Paddington BID (Business Improvement District).

The BID renewal process has just commenced for the 5 years from 2013 to 2018. With the continued Crossrail work around Paddington, this continues to be a challenging time for the area. Come along and ask your questions!

As usual we will meet in the Upstairs Theatre Bar at the Victoria Pub on Strathearn Place, from 6:30. Normally the speaker will start at 7pm and we aim to finish questions by around 8pm so that there is time for informal chat, drinks and food if you want to stay around.

HPEA events update: AGM, coffee morning and pub evening

The November Pub Evening will be on Wednesday 14 November at the Victoria pub in Strathearn Place. Subject and speaker to be announced shortly.
