Porchester Hall is located directly above Paddington Library. So library staff and members are often unwitting witnesses to all manner of events (weddings, pop concerts, recorded music activities, etc).
We once received a load of mis-delivered pizzas intended for a political group called Democrats Abroad who were voting in the Democratic Caucus (Clinton v. Obama). Noise can travel a long way so we are all a bit blasé about it.
We were in familiar territory last Thursday when boyband One Direction wandered into the library en route to their rehearsal in Porchester Hall. Ah well, just another day at the library…
