This event in the award-winning surroundings of Bloomsbury will recognise the bequest of Rugby School’s founder, Lawrence Sheriff, with the unveiling of a commemorative plaque on the corner of Rugby and Lamb's Conduit Streets by AN Wilson (a pupil at the School from 1964-68). It will also celebrate the founding of the Rugby Estate with all the local retailers as well as the Rugbeian community. After the official unveiling at 6pm, everyone is invited to join the ‘Street Party’ and enjoy the celebratory village atmosphere as well as browsing the delightful shops in an area recognised as one of the top ‘hidden gems’ in London.

Street celebrations, which include a drinks reception, music from the School, street theatre and networking,  has been organised by the Rugbeian Under 30’s. Open to everyone who has a history with the School, guests will require tickets for the street party (free), while there will be a nominal charge for the Under 30s annual get together in the Rugby Tavern.

This meeting was conviened to brief community groups on the timeline for discussions concerning proposed changes to bus routes, transport systems and improvments to the pedestrian environments throughout the West End.

Torrington Place / Tavistock Place route - Consultation

This consultation by Camden Council asks for your views on the current street layout at Torrington Place / Tavistock Place, which was implemented as a trial. We would like your opinion on whether to keep the current layout (with improvements such as wider pavements and stepped cycle tracks) or to remove it completely and return the street to its former, pre-trial layout (with two traffic lanes and a single, two-way cycle track).
