Calthorpe Project

An inner city oasis - a community garden and centre where people grow and learn together taking care of each other and the environment." The Project offers a varied programme of activities for children and adults, an under 5s drop-in and a number of community classes. During the school holidays there is an extensive programme of activities. The site also includes a one-acre organic community garden where local people can grow their own food and a floodlit sports pitch (marked for netball and five-a-side football).

The Society’s current research strategy focuses on landscape development, environmental change and human interaction in the Nile Delta and Valley, including the Sudan. The current fieldwork projects range from excavation at major Delta sites and surveying the ancient capital of Memphis, to mapping the changing river course at ancient Thebes.

The EES is headed by a President and several Vice-Presidents and is governed by a Board of Trustees which includes the three Officers of the Society: the Chair, Vice-Chair and Treasurer. The Society’s registered address is 3 Doughty Mews, London WC1N 2PG although we actually own three adjoining Mews properties - 2-4 Doughty Mews. The premises house the Society’s Offices, Library and Archive and are manned by three permanent staff. We also have small office in Cairo housed on the premises of the British Council and staffed by the Society’s Cairo Representative.

Hidden Cities

Hidden Cities is a London-based creative producing practice specialising in area-specific Festivals and cultural strategic partnership development. Our festivals and events are designed to develop a more coherent sense of ‘area’ through public showcasing of cultural practice, and to encourage audiences, both local and those new to the areas we are working in, to engage with an area’s culture and local businesses, improving both social and economic dynamics.

We are here to make Holborn a better place to live, work and visit. Welcome to your local Business Improvement District (BID for short). Established in 2005 with the aim of improving the commercial well-being of the Holborn area, we currently represent the interests of over 480 local businesses.

London Play

Nearly half of children in London surveyed say they do not play out as much as they like. We want to change this. A third say they would play out more if it were safer. This is around 10% higher than the UK average. We aim for every child in London to have high quality, accessible and inclusive play opportunities. We campaign for more and improved play spaces and services, and support playwork in the capital.
