Copper Box Arena
The Copper Box Arena is based in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, home to the 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games.
In 2013 the venue opened its doors to the public having gone through a period of transformation and is now the third largest arena in London, with a 7,500 total capacity.
The Copper Box Arena is managed by GLL, a Charitable Social Enterprise on behalf of the London Legacy Development Corporation. As the UK’s largest charitable social enterprise, GLL’s mission to make services and spaces better for everyone aligned well with the legacy objectives of the venue.
The venue has worked with a variety of organisations, agencies and promoters helping to successfully develop and deliver a diverse calendar of events ranging from International sporting events, conferences, exhibitions, product launches and entertainment shows helping to make the Copper Box Arena one of the most popular Arenas in London.
It’s the unique versatility and flexibility of the 2,712m2 of pillar-free floor area that really appeals to clients whilst back of house there is a host of production and ancillary areas to facilitate the most complex of event requirements.
Lambeth Palace has been the home of the Archbishops of Canterbury for 800 years. The venue has 12 unique event spaces available to hire from 2 person meetings all the way up to 2000-person garden parties.

All our clients are ethically checked to ensure that only clients with the highest ethical standards can host events. All our catering is provided in-house, and we try to use as much in season from the garden as we can.
