On the lower ground floor, the space is quiet and private, separate from the rest of the hotel. The grand entrance to the suite is breathtaking, through large double doors. The high ceilings, vast space and modern features scream luxury, ideal for dinner dances, conferences, product launches and gala dinners.  The largest suite can accommodate up to 900 people, depending on how the room is set out.

Lords Cricket Ground is not only the at the heart of London, but also the world of cricket. Such an iconic venue for sports, it may not be the obvious choice for private events.

Ideas for a freakishly fun Halloween party!

Halloween was originally a festival of both celebration and superstition, where people would light bonfires and dress up in costumes to ward off ghosts. Now, it’s all about trick-or-treating, who can wear the scariest outfit and of course, lots of sweet treats! Considering Halloween falls between Autumn and Winter, taking your kids trick-or-treating in the freezing cold probably isn’t the most appealing thought!

Club Ten, London

Club Ten is an exciting and unique London venue located right next to the iconic St Paul’s Cathedral. Unlike other central London venues, Club Ten is three floors below street level, creating the perfect private space for your event.  If you love all-things-modern, this is the venue for you. With low ceilings, spotlights and futuristic furniture, the funky atmosphere is ideal for Bar/Batmitzvahs, milestone birthdays and hen/stag dos.

Your Event: Disaster or Triumph?

We’d like to paint you a picture – an event with and without an event planner. Imagining how it’ll all turn out is part of the excitement leading up to your event! But what if this special time is filled with worry and stress instead of fun and anticipation? Arranging everything yourself from flowers to catering can be demanding and time-consuming. An event planner doesn’t just take control of organising these important elements, they also act as the go-to person for any pre-event issues and questions you have. This month, rather than tell you how we can help you, we’re going to show you instead!
