The Gala Reception will take place at the House of St Barnabas (Soho).
The House of St Barnabas is a charity pledging to break the cycle of homelessness and social exclusion in London. It runs a social enterprise, a not-for-profit members’ club, which helps to fund its Employment Academy aimed at supporting people back into lasting paid work. The House of St Barnabas is seeking to redefine the notion of a members’ club, to challenge stereotypes around the idea of exclusivity and to create a different kind of membership. The club is a creative, socially conscious and vibrant space.
