Madame Tussauds London was founded in 1835 on Baker Street, moving to Marylebone Road in 1884 where it has remained since. For the last century it has been an events venue, hosting the likes of Queen Victoria and her family for afternoon tea. It has kept up to date with the latest faces in pop-culture, music, sport, fame and history and the venue itself has certainly not been left behind with constant refurbishments to keep it modern and fresh.
There is more to Madame Tussauds than simply being a stand-out choice of venue. Lots of extra elements and surprises work to takes guest on a journey through history and pop-culture. Its roster of famous faces and figures is constantly being updated and improved with bigger and better exhibitions every year. It’s a stand-out choice that always impresses guests and clients alike.

Ministry Venues, 103 Gaunt Street
2018 was a landmark year for Ministry Venue’s 103 Gaunt Street, hosting 43% more events than the previous year and winning prestigious brand events from both British and international companies.
WIth significant investment in its technological and environmental infrastructure in 2019, the venue drastically reduced its use of single-use plastics, switched to digital communication across every process of its venue hire process and invested in high performance technology to replace the need for printing branded materials throughout the venue.
The venue hire team grew by 150% to provide clients with a high level of service and bring new corporate clients to working with the venue. Every potential date in December was full with conferences and celebrations, as the venue’s busiest month to date.
While the team introduced a brand new venue into its portfolio, 103 Gaunt Street outperformed targets, bringing in prestigious brand clients including a number of FTSE 100 companies and world class brands.

It’s unique in its position and its design and being in situ for only 10 weeks each year, offers real exclusivity within, what is already, a very special location.
The Kia Oval
The Kia Oval used to be called a hidden gem in conference and events but with an extensive list of repeat clients holding their annual events with us, including Alzheimer’s, Macmillan and SGN, we think hidden may now be an understatement! Our focus as a venue is not only on ensuring we continue our growth but on the customer experience for the 2000 events we hold per year; this experience starts from the moment a client enquires right through to the post event follow up. Each event is one of a kind, and we believe that the service we provide should be too. Our devotion to delivering the best events possible is exemplified by feedback from one of our repeat clients, St Giles Trust. “The staff at the Oval were amazing and super helpful and the food exceeded my expectations. All in all it was a great day and our staff really enjoyed the conference and for our first timers they were in awe of the grounds (I too am still in awe even though I’ve been there a few times).”
