This year at the h.Club 100 Awards Show, ‘The h.Club Foundation’s Charity Award’ will be presented for the first time.

THE HOSPITAL CLUB is a unique hub in the heart of London, offering the members of the creative industries the environment and facilities it needs to Create, Connect and Collaborate.  As part of London’s creative community, its role is to discover and host the best creative talent, and produce, publish and celebrate their work. 

The Club opened fifteen new luxury bedrooms in early 2015.

The Hospital Club’s own creative initiatives are extensive. In addition to a diverse and comprehensive member facilities and event program, the Hospital Club is home to the award-winning Hospital Club Events Company, producing high-end private and corporate events of all sizes, at 24 Endell Street and also externally (the British Fashion Council, Sky, EE, PZ Cussons, Media Math, Studio Canal+).


The Hospital Club Studio is London’s most central and luxuriously appointed TV production facility (which regularly hosts WATCHDOG (BBC), THE AGENDA (ITV) and THE MERCURY PRIZE SESSIONS (C4) as well as clients including Disney, MTV and BBC Comedy.


The Hospital Club Gallery hosts up to five public art exhibitions each year, with emphasis on supporting emerging artists and digital art. Canadian photographic artist Jessica Eaton’s debut solo London show garnered national critical acclaim when it ran in January 2014. 


The h.Club Foundation was newly established in 2014 to administer charitable support to emerging artists and young people in Camden, as well as to select charities.


The Club’s annual h.Club100 awards celebrate the one hundred most innovative and inspiring individuals currently working across ten creative industry categories.


The Hospital Club’s annual Sustainability Week takes place in November and welcomes leaders from across the business world to discuss different key topics each day ranging from Food & Oceans, Consumption and the Media Debate to Fashion & Sex. 2013 speakers included Peter Mather (BP Europe), Celia Gregory (The Marine Foundation), Adam Elman (Plan A, Marks&Spencer), Tim Lindsay (D&AD), Dax Lovegrove (WWF), Tamsin Lejeune (The Ethical Fashion Forum) and Sam Roddick (Coco de Mer).

In 2013 the Hospital Club restaurant was awarded two stars by the prestigious Sustainable Restaurant Association.

Set up to be a voice for creative industries, the council focus on areas where there are barriers to growth facing the sector, such as access to finance, skills, export markets, regulation, intellectual property (IP) and infrastructure.
