About Planet Nation

Planet London was founded in 2011 by Naomi Bennett-Hall and Katie Bennett-Hall. In 2016 Katie Bennett-Hall left the business and Naomi Bennett re-launched the website as Planet Nation - expanding the breadth of the website to reflect the wide content.

Planet Nation is a listings and lifestyle website by the community for the community. As well as an events calendar to promote the events taking place in the community, there is also a variety of articles on various subjects including books, theatre, music and general lifestyle and opinion articles.

Planet Nation works hard to give visibility and a platform to those in our community keeping it going, and often overlooked. It is proud to collaborate and contribute on a regular basis and is always open to new suggestions of ways to further enhance our community.

Planet Nation is one of the websites that comes under the Ultimate Planet umbrella. All of the Planet strands have one thing in common; support, promotion and focus on the LBQ community.
