Upcoming Kensington Society events

Sold out – again:

Celebrating the work of George and Peto

Tuesday 5 June 2018, 6:30pm

This walk and lecture about the dramatic Victorian architecture of Sir Ernest George and Harold Peto in Collingham Gardens and Harrington Gardens was quickly sold out when we held it in May 2017, so we’re doing it again in June – and on 20 May it was sold out again!

More events to come!

We are planning more events for 2018, and as soon as the details have been worked out, they will be posted here.

So please come back and check regularly.

A guided walk around Notting Dale

Thursday 13 September 2018, 10:30am

Local historian Caroline MacMillan takes us on a walk through Notting Dale, visiting the sites of the famous “Potteries”, where bricks were made for London’s growing suburbs, and the “Piggeries”, where once three times as many swine as humans lived.

The walk finishes at The Mitre pub, which stands on the site of Notting Hill Farm.

Gastronomic walkabout

Thursday 4 October 2018, 4:00pm

Where to meet up: Thurloe Street entrance to South Kensington tube station

We plan a gastronomic tour of a selection of restaurants and specialist food retailers for a small group of members. We will visit specially chosen outlets where you will be able to taste some of their products and hear how they decide what to include on their shelves. We hope to end at a very special new location for a glass of wine or a cup of tea.

The group will be limited to 15 maximum.

This event is still being planned. More details soon to come.
