WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT THE SALON FOR THE CITY:
"Loved speaking at this event - marvellous location in the heart of Westminster - and all the questions from a curious, cosmopolitan, engaged audience."
Lee Jackson (Victorian London)
"A beautiful library, deucedly good speakers, a laid-back atmosphere, a spellbinding evening and the kind of Q&A session that'll have you fumbling for your notebook. A whole heap of London...it's a recipe that's only equalled by the fabulous gin cocktails handed out to those lucky enough to get a ticket."
Matt Brown (Editor at large Londonist)
"Salon for the City" proves that people still crave unique, transient, live and challenging events in a world of digitally cloned disconnected mulch. Dave McKeen (Artist and illustrator)
