Two guest speakers presenting their ambitious plans for Kingston

This month we restart our Monthly public meetings with not one but two guest speakers on matters close to the heart of the Society. Wednesday 20th October – starting at 7.30pm Same place, same time, and in case you’ve forgotten or have never been:

Judge Lecture Theatre in the grounds of Tiffin Boys’ School Queen Elizabeth Rd, Kingston upon Thames KT2 6RL  – entrance via  London Road

The first speaker will be Kirsten Henley the CEO of Kingston First and she will be speaking and describing the draft plans, which have been produced by Kingston based firms of architects and landscape architects, to redesign two areas in central Kingston: the Memorial Gardens (with some quite radical ideas), and the second for the area known as “Eagle Brewery Wharf” facing the river off the HIgh Street where a number of challenges need addressing.

The second set of speakers will be teams from RER which is the developer who has bought the County Hall site formerly owned by Surrey County Council. We have already met them on two previous  occasions and this will be an opportunity to hear how their plans have evolved over the last few months.

Coming to our public meetings

Unless otherwise noted, all our meetings are held in the Judge Lecture Theatre, Tiffin School, Kingston upon Thames KT2 6RL. Click here to see a map of the area.

Access is from the London Road entrance where there is free parking available, subject to other events happening at the school. There are bus stops outside and opposite the school entrance, and the main bus and railway stations are within short walking distance. The Judge Lecture Theatre is accessed through the main doors next to the new circular school cafeteria. It is on the ground floor and we believe you will find it accessible.

Meetings begin promptly at 7:30pm. Doors are open at 7:00.

Free admission for members of the Society. Members of the public are very welcome to attend and are asked to pay £2 toward our costs, alternatively they can join the Society on the night for just £10.
