ABOUT THE VENUE


In 1891, St Bride Foundation was established to provide a social, cultural and recreational centre for London's Fleet Street and its burgeoning print and publishing trade. Now, this historic site is a living and breathing community once again and St Bride Foundation is reaffirming its status as a major London hub for the creative arts. We will be using Bridewell Hall and The Faringdon Room.
