Guests are consistently wowed by the sheer level of history within the building, from the original tiles of the washrooms of the United Services Club in our Café Duke, to the original busts of Napoleon and original royal portraits on the walls. The venue has even produced a historical tour guide to give to clients and guests as they enter the building to take them on a journey through history.
The last 12 months at Alexandra Palace has been a time of huge challenges, but also vast improvements and progress. Our dedicated team has worked with clients, partners and our visitors to run a bustling programme of culture and sport, that has been enjoyed by millions, whether in person or watching from their homes across the world. Our commitment to maintaining the historic character of the Palace, but also bringing it in line with requirements of the 21st century has been fundamental to all that been achieved and all that has been enjoyed.
Lord’s Cricket Ground
Steeped in over 200 years of history, Lord’s is the most famous cricket ground in the world and an exceptional venue for all occasions.
At its heart is the iconic Pavilion and famous Long Room with high ceilings and historic artwork, which for centuries legends of the game have walked through on their way to the outfield.
Next door, the world’s oldest sports museum, which contains the original Ashes Urn amongst other iconic sporting memorabilia from cricket’s long history, is a popular place to host a drinks reception.
The recently redeveloped Compton and Edrich stands are evidence of the constantly evolving nature of Lord’s, a venue which has been able to remain first class over time, without losing its historic aura.
Lord’s is a place where history and tradition sit comfortably side by side with cutting-edge, future focussed thinking, that is always passed on to our clients.

Opened in 1972 and situated in the heart of the City of London, Plaisterers’ Hall reflects the grandeur of a bygone era – in an ultra-modern setting. Designed to impress, this purpose-built events space combines neoclassical splendour with modern day tech. Plaisterers Hall is London’s largest City Livery Hall in the City of London. It’s a breath-taking and sophisticated venue, boasting impressive facilities. The intricacy of the plaster work around the venue, maintained to an impeccable standard, combined with the impressive chandeliers in the Great Hall makes Plaisterers Hall so special. Sustainability is at the forefront of our decision making for catering and venue management, that’s why all 165 lights in the Great Hall chandeliers are now LED and we’ve implemented this across the venue, currently achieving 80% of our lighting as LED. Plaisterers’ Hall stands apart from competition with its tall ceiling and outside space, helping to reassure our COVID conscious guests. We are passionate about new clients understanding the world of Liveries, so we took to Youtube and started a Livery series on our ‘In Conversation with eve’ channel; to promote the philanthropic endeavours of Livery Companies and give an insight to events at Plaisterers’ Hall.
