At this special event with Conway Hall, we drink in London's rich and boozy culture (responsibly, of course), looking at the history of London’s beer and gin life; and touching on pubs past, present and future.

Sample the wares of Five Points, Brew By Numbers, Wild Card, Hop Stuff and more, and hear from experts including author Pete Brown, sommelier Melissa Cole and writer Richard Barnett.

London Is Drinking, 30 November, 7.30pm-9pm (the bar is open from 6.30pm, and then after the event until about 10pm), Conway Hall. Tickets £8, £5 concessions available here.
