What's on in Westminster


23 Mar - 30 Sep 2020 | Westminster City Council |


Following government advice, all City Lions programmes and work experience opportunities have been postponed. It’s crucial that in times like this everyone pulls together – as a community, as councils working together, and with business and our other partners. We’ve already had a number of enquiries from local people and groups asking how they can help their neighbour or in their communities. We are as always humbled by the amazing community spirit of Westminster’s residents.

We were previously taught that art is a paintbrush and paper but today has shown us that art is a huge world. City Lions is a good thing to do as it provides really good opportunities to visit places like this (Somerset House).
