Conway Hall is a venue which comes complete with a rich history. Built in the 1920s, the building is owned and run by (and acts as the HQ for) the UK’s last surviving Ethical Society. In recent years, Conway Hall has also been used as a filming location for smash hit television shows, including the BBC’s runaway success ‘Bodyguard’ and its long-running series ‘New Tricks’.
Boasting an easily accessible location, which is only a short walk away from the British Museum and London’s bustling West End, Conway Hall is well-equipped to host private events. The venue is often hired out for classical and live music functions, but is also available as a space for talks, conferences, business meetings and wedding receptions.
Conway Hall’s stand-out event spaces include the Main Hall, which is period in style and was acoustically designed for classical music and speaking events. The Main Hall has also recently undergone an upgrade of its technical equipment, with it now featuring a projector and screen.
A second excellent space is the Brockway Room, which was given a fresh lick of paint in the past year (further refurbishment of the venue’s public areas are planned for the near future). Located on the ground floor, the room is fully accessible for wheelchair users and can host up to 70 guests for a seated function, such as a meeting or lecture. The space also benefits from a skylight, which floods the room with natural daylight.
Elsewhere, Conway Hall also recently opened a dedicated café and bar area and is now licensed to perform weddings.
