About us



Pamela Dow and Sarah Dallas are neighbours who realised they liked getting people together to think and talk about interesting topics.

de beauvoir

The De Beauvoir Balloon Debate brings together insightful, passionate speakers and thought-provoking topics in one enjoyable evening. We ask our audience: if you could save one brilliant idea out of three in a hot air balloon – which would it be?

Hosted in the heart of De Beauvoir, just north of Shoreditch, the evening is punctuated with a glass of wine and convivial company.

Getting here: De Beauvoir Block, 92-96 De Beauvoir Road, London N1 4EN. Haggerston Overground, and five-minute walk. Alternatively, buses 243 and 149 (alight at Haggerston), or buses 21, 141 and 76 (alight at Northchurch Road).

Entry is free.
