A new monthly social evening is being launched for journalists and others in the London media world. The London Press Club, which has been bringing the industry together since 1882, is resurrecting the tradition of regular drinks, on the back of popular demand. We are delighted that the Frontline Club (13 Norfolk Place, W2 1QJ) has offered to host us on the first Tuesday of each month, starting from 7 October at 6.30pm. No entrance fee and there is a pay bar.

The revitalised London Press Club has held debates and social events this year at venues ranging from newspaper offices and embassies to the British Library and Stationers’ Hall. Speakers have included Paul Dacre and Doreen Lawrence at the London Press Club Awards, Sun editor David Dinsmore at a forum and Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger at a debate.

In the spirit of the Fleet Street of old, the Press Club is delighted to open up these evenings to include other media organisations.

“We are excited to build on our programme of full-house debates and our annual awards and Press Club Ball with this regular chance to catch up and make new connections at such a fitting setting,” said London Press Club chairman Doug Wills. “With our industry now spread all over London and beyond, and coming under increased scrutiny, I am proud that the Press Club is able to join with affiliated organisations in reviving this great tradition.”
