St. James's Park, SW1Y

The Space

Situated between number 10 Downing Street, Piccadilly Circus and Buckingham Palace, locations don’t come more iconic: the Institute of Contemporary Arts is a legendary venue with views over The Mall, Big Ben, the London Eye and St. James’s Park. The ICA has two Regency rooms, a fully equipped theatre, studio, bar and two classic cinema spaces available to hire.

Event organisation and catering is provided exclusively by world-renown caterers Arnold & Henderson, who run the highly acclaimed Rochelle Canteen, based in Shoreditch’s Rochelle School, now also at the ICA. 

Melanie Arnold & Margot Henderson have been organising and catering celebrations for over 25 years and no brief is too big or too small for their in-house team to organise from start to finish, including menus, drinks, staffing, flowers, lighting, music and entertainment.
