Central Hall

Hold your event in the spectacular backdrop of our Central Hall to bring a ‘wow’ factor to any corporate or private event.

The grand entrance. Soaring Romanesque arches. Gilt and terracotta ceiling panels. A magnificent stone staircase… and a giant Diplodocus skeleton cast centrepiece.

In fact, the Central Hall’s dramatic sense of place makes it popular for all kinds of events. 

We’ve held after-show parties, rock concerts, press launches, fashion shows and awards ceremonies here, as well as dinner dances, buffets, bar and bat mitzvahs, anniversaries and weddings.

Guest numbers

The Central Hall’s size and shape make it flexible enough to accommodate:

  • Dinner: 100 - 700 guests
  • Receptions: 200 - 1,200 guests

Depending on the number of people and the nature of your event, you can also hire extra space and rooms off the main hall to meet your specific needs. 

All our venues are flexible and we would be delighted to have a chat about your event ideas.
