VENUE

St Pancras Renaissance Hotel

Euston Rd, Kings Cross, London, NW1 2AR, UK

The iconic St Pancras Renaissance Hotel London combines Victorian splendour with contemporary style. It offers an inspiring setting which celebrates both heritage and renaissance. The main conference is held in the dramatic space of Hansom Hall which includes access to an outdoor patio area.

 

Refreshments will be served in The Gallery, a curved room framed by ornate ceiling and chandeliers. The Ladies’ Smoking Room – the historic first venue in which women were permitted to smoke – makes for unforgettable peer-to-peer networking during refreshment breaks throughout the day. It offers a relaxed space to engage with experts in informal display zones. It will also be used for the Olivier Mythodrama breakout workshop after the morning coffee break.

HOW TO GET THERE

Located in the heart of London’s busy King’s Cross, the hotel adjoins the busy railway station with access to the Eurostar terminal.

 

Train routes from the nearby Euston, St Pancras and King’s Cross overground stations (including easy connections to the key London Airports), the Eurostar international high speed rail and 6 underground tube lines mean King’s Cross is one of London’s most accessible neighbourhoods for both UK and international Festival delegates.
