Our Story

The Kent House Series is a themed portfolio of contemporary author talks presented monthly, from January to June with acclaimed authors and inspiring interviewers.


Set in the atmospheric surroundings of historic Kent House, in the heart of London’s Knightsbridge - a building with a rich royal history – our literary sessions will appeal to book lovers of all ages.
Originally built in 1790 by Queen Victoria’s father Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, it was subsequently bought by the industrialist Sir Saxton Noble, who occupied it until 1940 with his wife, granddaughter of Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

The drawing rooms have been the setting for countless performances and soirees over many decades by leading performers and authors of their day, including the famous Ballet Russes.

The charity we have chosen to support is another project starting in 2024 at Kent House – The Open Kitchen.  This initiative is to give refugees, living in the borough of Westminster in hotels with no cooking facilities, the opportunity to use the Kent House kitchen once a month to make nutritious food for their families.
