No idea how you could get that with Date(2019,10,27,2,30) at the beginning!

Of course not: you wrote 13:00 *in London*, so you get the time zone 
associated with your time (I assume you have a date of course with it). 
"13:00" is not always correct, it means nothing per se. It's "13:00 *in 
London*" that is always correct, with the time zone.
