The House of St Barnabas Historical Building Tour

Would you like to learn more about the history of our fair House? Are you curious about what lies behind the door at 1 Greek Street? If you would like to take a peek inside join Reverend Adam Scott on Saturday 14th January 2017 and explore our rich history.

Aside from tours, the House is usually open to our members only, making this a rare chance to take a peek inside at the grand Georgian interiors and discover the House’s long history. Whilst you’re enjoying the beautiful surroundings of our Georgian townhouse, why not take a moment and join us for a cup of tea and cake in the hidden courtyard garden.

This is also a perfect opportunity to discover more about our innovative charity and its social business model, as well as taking in The Collective, our own programme of contemporary visual art that showcases the work of emerging and established artists, conceived to inspire and uplift.

#17: Is Exercise the New Elitism?

Price: £15

From the costly gym membership you never use to the fat-shaming of women and bragging about marathon training on social media, has our fascination with keeping fit turned unhealthy?

At the start of the new year there’s more pressure than ever to exercise. But does this just mask a new form of snobbery? Are we creating a narcissistic culture that celebrates great abs over emotional wellbeing and treats the overweight like second-class citizens? Being fit is high fashion but can everyone afford to join in?

Join speakers including Lorraine Candy, Luxury Content Director at The Sunday Times and former Editor-in-Chief of Elle, Tim Weeks, Olympic trainer and fitness thinker, and Morgan Rees, founder of Men’s Health, in a debate chaired by Observer columnist Miranda Sawyer, to explore the role of fitness in modern society.
