The City of London’s Culture Mile programme, in its north west district, is keen to show benefits for locals, as well as visitors who may use the new guides I mentioned. Here’s news of three events for anyone in the local community, from Head of Marketing Jamie Reece.
“Culture Mile Connects is a series of free events that enables everyone working nearby to connect with each other, tap into and benefit from the unique resources on its doorstep.
“Each event in the series has been curated to provide inspiration, new skills and provocation, facilitate the exchange of new ideas, showcase best-in-class work and enrich hyperlocal business networks.
“Upcoming events that are open to everyone in the local community include:
12 October, 12 – 1pm, Standard Chartered Bank

18 October, 12 – 12.30pm, St. Barts Great Hall

Culture Mile Spotlight
19 October, 9 – 10am, Legal & General

Culture Mile Connects is supported by the Culture Mile Business Partnership and its Steering Groups, working towards establishing a culture-led Business Improvement District (BID) in the north-west corner of the Square Mile in spring 2023. My posts about the BID.
Jamie also tells me he is moving next week to a new role nearby as Head of Marketing and PR at the Museum of London “still very much within Culture Mile, but not working on Culture Mile”.
The Museum is due to close in December, and then reopen as the London Museum in a new home in West Smithfield in 2025 – but I’m sure we’ll hear lots in between. Museum of London Docklands will remain open throughout.
