Welcome to Holborn Voice

Welcome to Holborn Voice, here to serve everyone who lives or works in Holborn.

People sometimes look surprised when we tell them we live in Holborn: know the feeling? It’s time for Holborn to put its best suit on and make itself heard.

Holborn Voice aims to do two things. One is to keep you in touch with what’s going on in your community; the other is to offer you a way of having your say. If there’s something you like, let us know – and shout if there’s something you don’t.

Working here? We hope Holborn Voice will persuade you that work is not the only thing that happens: you are in a lively neighbourhood, mixed in every way, full of great facilities, talented people and inventive businesses.

It’s your neighbourhood too: hang around and see what happens.
