If you are planning any kind of music related event in London, then look no further than the following top picks when it comes to selecting the right venue.
Rather than just serving as a simple backdrop, Mode is all about creating an overall experience; one that guests are sure to remember. This is done in large part due to the creative and innovative interior, which is complete in a striking ‘Future Vintage’ theme, immersing you in a rich space inspired by the industrial revolution and the cultural history of Notting Hill. With a main room, mezzanine and cocktail bar on offer, there’s plenty of space for those in attendance, and the venue is already well versed in playing host to all sorts of infamous musical performers.
Studio Spaces E1 is the ideal choice if you are looking for something that is highly flexible in its use, with an adaptable layout and a simple enough finish so that you can kit the space out accordingly for your particular event. Stemming from a central kitchen/lounge area, you will find three main spaces which can either be hired individually or combined to offer a maximum capacity of 1250. These include: The Black Studio, one of the few blackout spaces in London; The White Studio, which is flooded by light in thanks to the south facing floor-to-ceiling windows; and The Warehouse, a generous and versatile space.
Alexandra Palace is a venue that is guaranteed to impress, be it in terms of its appearance, size or history. Set within 196 acres of its very own parkland, the grounds boast wonderful panoramic views of London’s iconic skyline, whilst inside you will find 9 unobstructed spaces which are interconnected and come in a range of sizes and uses. With vast onsite parking accommodating up to 1500 cars and good nearby transport links, getting there is certainly not an issue, nor is the capacity, considering there is room for a whopping 10,000 guests in total.
St John at Hackney has played host to everything from electronic to classical when it comes to music, with previous performers including Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sande, Coldplay and Anna Calvi with Heritage Orchestra, so you would certainly be joining an illustrious list if you decided to hold your event here. The building itself is a Grade II listed church that dates back to the 18th century, with huge windows that flood the space with natural light. The maximum capacity is 1400, with 1000 standing on the ground floor and 400 seated on the balcony, but the layout and seating arrangements can be altered accordingly.
With doors opening out onto the iconic Piccadilly Circus, Rah Rah Room’s enviable central London location puts it right in the heart of the city’s action, just moments from the likes of Soho and Covent Garden. Being one of the top Cabaret clubs in the city, they boast a generous stage and all the necessary production facilities for a seamless music event, with the period glamour style found throughout creating a warm and intimate vibe in spite of the good 600 person capacity. Easily reached transport links include Piccadilly Circus itself, as well as Charing Cross and Green Park.
