Jazz up your Daylight Savings Time at St Pancras International

Whilst we might all loose an hour sleep when the clocks spring forward tonight, tomorrow marks the start of British Summer Time – which we are very excited about here at the station.
 
Don’t worry, we’ll  make sure our stunning DENT London clock is put forward, but make sure you don’t forget to do the same with yours wherever you’ll be in the morning.
 
With only 23 hours in the day, make the most of your Sunday and pop down and join us at Searcys between 1pm and 4pm for your first official summer treat.
 
Not only will you be able to enjoy Searcys delicious Sunday Roast, but tomorrow also marks the last day of the hugely popular Live Jazz Session. The toe-tapping performances have been held at Searcys every Sunday throughout March filling the restaurant, and the station, with the beautiful sound of chilled out jazz.
 
You’ll be thinking “what lost hour?” in no time!

Yesterday afternoon, St Pancras International station was lucky enough to welcome a double whammy of award-winners through the doors; graphic artist Cat Zaza from Paris and poet-translator Timothy Adès.
