Victorian Charm at Christmas

Venue Hire

Key Facts

Christmas dinner - guests seated at long tables

You can use our two floors for a reception on arrival followed by a meal in the first floor gallery. We can host simple receptions, informal buffet events, and dinners. Our venue hire operations began with a Christmas party back in 1994 since when the museum and the facilities offered for venue hire have developed a great deal. Numerous successful Christmas parties have been held under the Victorian roof over the years.

Daytime Parties

On Mondays we can host daytime parties. Some companies and organisations prefer a daytime celebration because this enables staff and guests to travel home easily even if they live some way from London, without the expense of hotel accommodation. The event can begin with coffee or an aperitif before lunch and you can have a traditional hot lunch or something more informal as you wish. After lunch there can be a disco or other music and dancing. We can draw the blinds and add decorative lighting to give you a party atmosphere. Alternatively your lunch may go on into the afternoon and simply end with tea and coffee before departure. With such excellent transport links, getting home will be easy, and there will be ample time to relax at home before work the next day!
