The Steeple Times launches at Blakes Hotel
Tonight, the official launch of The Steeple Times will be marked with a reception at Blakes Hotel in South Kensington.
We are honoured to launch our quirky yet informative magazine at the world’s first boutique hotel in the company of friends, writers and advertisers. Several photographers and two film crews will also be present so we will be able to share images and footage from the night with our readers shortly.
Matthew Steeples, Editor-in-Chief, comments:
“May I take this opportunity to thank all who have helped with the development of The Steeple Times and most especially our creative director, Angelo Valentino. Our team have done a spectacular job and already our first contributors, Thomas “T.J.” James and Claire Rubinstein, have shared some superb news pieces with our readership. Many more articles will be going live in the forthcoming weeks and we look forward to your comments and ideas.”
“I’ve garnered much inspiration to create The Steeple Times from many sources, but titles such as Spear’s, the New York Social Diary and The Huffington Post have very much guided our development. The encouragement of so many friends, equally, has been phenomenal but I’d especially like to thank Anthony Brown, Marie-Athena Papathanasiou, Barbara Minto, John Stoddart, Rex Leyland, Robin and Anne Penberthy, Basia Briggs, Richard Eden, Jacqueline Branston, Jesse Schulman, Gina Miller, Stephen Annett, Michael Ezra, Linda Rooney and Ruxandra Lazarescu for their input and guidance.”
“It is most generous of Julian Payne and Jesus Sauri of Blakes to have organised tonight’s reception and I would also like to thank our sponsors Gary Hazell and Andrew McDonald of Purity Vodka, Alex Claos of Viru Beer and Jean Nedelec of Bougie Macaron & Tea for their participation.”
