House of Lords

Afternoon Tea at The House of Lords

A highlight of the Awards calendar is the unique opportunity for sponsors, VIPs and international guests to visit the House of Lords for a networking afternoon tea.

This event is free for invitees and provides not only an insight into a historic British institution, but also the opportunity to network with high-profile peers from the international design sphere.

The event and its location reflect not only SBID’s proudly British roots but also the Society’s commitment to providing platforms for creative brands to come together, share ideas and collaborate. The fact that this experience cannot be bought – our access is by exclusive invitation only – makes the occasion all the more distinguished.

Sponsors are able to bring guests, providing an unparalleled chance to develop their business within the historic walls of this iconic London palace. This is an opportunity not to be missed.

Where: House of Lords, Palaces of Westminster
When: 3:30pm – 5pm, Thursday 24th November 2016

About Lord Taylor of Blackburn

Lord Taylor of Blackburn, CBE, JP, DL served on various governmental bodies connected with Education and the north-east region. He became National President of the Education Authorities of the United Kingdom.

In 1977 he was Chairman of a Government Committee of Enquiry into Management and Government of Schools, and later he was the author of the Taylor Report on problems in universities. He was a founder member of the Council of the University of Lancaster and served as Deputy Pro-Chancellor, 1972–95.

Lord Taylor sadly passed away on November 25 2015, a few days after a road accident. He will be sadly missed by his friend, SBID President Dr Vanessa Brady OBE, the team at SBID and our guests. His good humour, tenacity for education for all and love for people was contagious.
