  • Date Thursday, 29 February 2024
  • Time 6pm 9pm
  • Address The Hop Exchange, 24 Southwark St, London SE1 1TY

Throughout history, Bankside has been on the other side of London’s mainstream. 16th century ‘Banksyde’ was outside the walls of the city, making it a natural landing place for outsiders and free thinkers. So it makes sense that our biannual Better Bankside social takes place on one of the most unusual days of the year. A day that only exists once every four years – 29 February or Leap Year Day!

We will be celebrating this ‘extra’ day by having a party to celebrate London’s Other Side, with music, food, drink and entertainment.

Please join us at The Hop Exchange for an evening of networking, connection and collaboration (and a bit of fun) with fellow Banksiders.
