London Fashion Week is fast approaching and if you are looking to get involved and host an event this year, you will want to secure a suitably beautiful venue from the following selection.
U Block is a totally versatile warehouse space which you’ll find in the very cool area of Brick Lane. We all love a warehouse venue in London, don’t we? And this one has seen many a fashion show, thanks to it being a stylish space. From its polished concrete floor to its high ceilings, U Block has everything you need for a memorable catwalk experience. It’s part of the Old Truman Brewery, a place home to many creative businesses, independent shops, bars, restaurants, galleries… and more!
Also found near Victoria Station (just a 10 minute walk to be precise) as well as both Pimlico and St James Park tube stations, Royal Horticultural Halls is another very well connected venue at the hub of London’s action. Brimming with elegance and grace, this striking Edwardian venue brings the glamour necessary for a must see fashion event. The space itself is flexible in its use and can accommodate up to an impressive 700 guests at once, with the high curved ceiling making sure it never feels cramped in spite of the large number of attendees.
Split across a total of 3 floors and 70,000 square feet of interlinked space, Saatchi is a series of minimalistic, blank canvases that allow you to put your own spin on the interior to match the desired style and mood of your particular event. Each gallery offers high ceilings, wood flooring and Barasol lights (which simulate natural light), providing a bright and ultra-modern ambience no matter how dull the British weather may be outside. Victoria train station and Sloane Square tube station can both be comfortably reached on foot, allowing guests to travel easily.
The Saw Holborn was awarded the much sought after London Building of the Year Award by the Royal Institute of British Architects, immediately giving you an indication of how well designed it is. Available 7 days a week for anywhere from 10 to 1000 guests, this huge venue is a highly versatile option, with all sorts of different sized rooms that come as blank canvases, ready to be kitted out to meet your own particular requirements. Being centrally located, it has a whole host of nearby transport links, including no less than two train stations and 3 tube stations.
Damien Hirst described this venue as the ‘cultural heartbeat of London’, cementing its reputation as an iconic and vastly popular event space. The various diverse rooms on offer at ICA are all fully-equipped with state-of-the-art technology and equipment. The experienced in-house team are experts in assisting the smooth running of any number of different events, while the resident caterers can provide seasonal and bespoke menus to keep your guests satisfied. Speaking of guests, there is space for 350 people per event, and they can make use of both Charing Cross tube and train stations, each just 4 minutes away.
There are a whopping 21 function rooms available for hire at One Great George Street, combining to make a total capacity of 700. The gorgeous Great Hall alone can hold up to 400 but with all sorts of spaces, there is something for everyone here, no matter the scale of your event. The decadent feel and high quality finish found throughout will lend any occasion a sense of importance and purpose. Meanwhile, there are 3 tube stations (including Westminster and St James Park) as well as a train station that can all be reached in around 15 minutes or less.
