We are in the midst of the party season and if you want yours to stand out as one of the very best, then why not hold it in one of London’s finest venues?
Found in the heart of Shoreditch, Studio Spaces E2 was once a local rail station but has subsequently been converted into an events space with a wide range of uses. There are 2 floors on offer; The Loft, with its high vaulted ceilings and Victorian features, and The Round, with its much more modern flair courtesy of the built in coloured lighting and wireless projector. These distinct spaces can either be hired individually for your party or as a package, depending on the scale of the gathering, with bespoke quotes available accordingly.
The Kia Oval is one of the oldest stadiums in the whole world, and is still considered one of the best sporting venues out there. Thus, it continues to play host to international cricket matches throughout the summer months. Don’t let that fool you however, as there are various event spaces on offer here which are suitable for many different occasions, not just sporting ones. With a generous 1000 person capacity and several tube stations within easy reach, including Vauxhall, Kennington and Oval, this is a venue not to be overlooked for your next festive celebration.
Pause Bar offers an open-plan layout, perfect for getting guests mingling amongst each other and sharing in the Christmas cheer. Having much experience in hosting such events, you can opt for either a decadent champagne and canape reception or a more formal sit-down dinner, depending on the vibe you wanted. Whatever the case, the events managers will more than happily take care of all the leg work, creating a bespoke party that suits your particular needs and budget. It is also incredibly well connected, with no less than 4 tube stops and a train station in the immediate area.
Offering bright, flexible, purpose built event space that can accommodate up to 155 guests per reception, The Goldsmiths’ Centre is another choice well worth considering. There is seasonal catering on offer, as well as all the latest technology you could need for presentation/entertainment purposes. A truly unique opportunity, hiring out this venue actually helps to support the training of young people looking to get into the goldsmith trade. When it comes to getting there, Farringdon station is just a stone’s throw away, as is Barbican.
Found in the popular Central London area of Bloomsbury, The Foundling Museum is a Grade II listed Georgian-style building which functions as the setting for many different events, both private and corporate. Spaces on offer include a varied mix of both stunningly ornate historical rooms and contemporary exhibition and studio spaces, so the choice is yours when it comes to the look and feel you wanted for your particular Christmas party. It has a good maximum capacity and sits within close proximity of several transport links, including Russell Square and King’s Cross St Pancras.
