BEST EVENT VENUE – OVER 750 ATTENDEES
The Barbican is a world leading conference and international arts venue Located in the City of London, it is capable of holding meetings from 10-2,000 delegates in its fully equipped concert hall, theatres, conference suites and boardrooms
For many we are a world leading conference and events venue, for others we are a dynamic and creative international arts and learning centre. We want to ensure the two come together, which is why Business Events feed so much revenue back to the arts. Our business events offering delivers revenue that supports the arts whilst offering our clients the opportunity to add elements of our artistic offering into their events.
Rather than simply end an event with a drinks reception or dinner, our clients can experience the creativity and excitement of world leading performances and exhibitions, making their event not just different but memorable.
The Barbican is one of the City of London’s most iconic venues, it has a world leading arts programme, cutting edge technology and a dedicated, customer focused event management team. The spaces sell themselves, which is why we can spend our time focused on customer care and delivery for everyone who walks through our doors.
Evolution London is a purpose-built event venue. Located on an exclusive site in the heart of the Grade II listed Battersea Park, it offers a blank canvas setting with an unrivalled level of flexibility and branding potential. In operation since 2003, the venue has 5,500sqm of unimpeded event space and an 8m ceiling height, the venue boasts capacity for 2,000 for dinners and awards, 3,500 in theatre, 4,000 for receptions and 5,000 for exhibitions, and can be divided into separate areas.
This versatile venue can play host to a wide range of events, but Evolution London excels in awards ceremonies. In the last year, we have hosted a total of eighteen, with some of the boldest and most creative events! Including the following stand-out ceremonies: AV Awards, British Curry Awards, EA Masters, L’Oréal Trophy Awards, Music Week Awards, Sport Industry Awards, and M & IT Awards.
As with all venues, 2021 will go down as one of the most unprecedented and challenging that ExCeL London has ever faced.
At the start of the year, the venue was a far cry from its usual hustle and bustle as, once again, it supported the Government’s pandemic efforts as one of six mass vaccination centres, inoculating more than 130,000 people. Just a few months prior it had been transformed in just nine days into the UK’s largest temporary hospital.
Then in July it was able to spark back into life, transforming once again, into the world’s first indoor/outdoor race track for Formula E. This kickstarted a run of 90 events in just five months, ending with another debutant in the London Horse Show – again completely transforming the venue to welcome a rather more traditional type of horsepower.
In a year where flexibility was key, our venue offers exactly that, a blank canvas where we can effortlessly change from a mass vaccination centre to a world class race track, through to a bespoke fire training course for 15 people.
