Bespoke event in a historic setting? Step this way.
Posted: 29th October 2018
There’s a lot to be said for being walking distance from both the hub of Oxford Circus and the glorious green spaces of Regent’s Park; they really are iconic landmarks for Londoners and tourists alike!
Down the pipeline from the hub of shoppers and workers milling through the Circus, you come across an impressive row of Georgian townhouses, including our elegant home at 41 Portland Place.
As striking in reality as when described in any Jane Austen novel, the Georgian townhouse is symbolic of an impressive period of English architecture – inspired by classical Greek and Roman style – and is famous for its symmetry, proportion and balance. Typically, high ceilings are paired with large windows, flooding the grand rooms inside with an abundance of light; a fantastic quality that we can make the most of when hosting events. The space, light, history and interior design of a venue all combine to help create the right atmosphere for your product or showcase.
Each space at 41 Portland Place has its own unique characteristics: from the traditional Fellow’s Library, to the bright, modern Wolfson and Exhibition Area, to the very pinnacle of classical Georgian architecture, The John Newson-Davis Suite which has floor to ceiling sash windows, elegant columns, ornate plaster ceilings, antique mirrors and marble fireplaces. The walls of this room are adorned with two large oil paintings of the house’s original owners: The Honourable Thomas Gage and his wife, Margaret Kemble Gage, adding a further reminder of its long history to your setting.
We have turned our hand to many different styles of showcase event over the years and include The House of Peroni, Jaeger, Ernest Jones, Lipton and Boots among our clients. We pride ourselves on versatility and are always happy and willing to help create the perfect bespoke event for you and your guests. With our extensive ‘little black book’ of contacts, we can outsource pretty much anything we cannot produce in-house, tailoring our packages to meet your brand requirements. And of course, our outstanding chefs will cook up a storm to make sure you have a food experience to match.
You can choose just room hire, our exclusive first floor package which includes our lovely terrace overlooking the rooftops of Marylebone, or whole venue hire which is not restricted to a daily allowance, giving you both the time and space for the perfect event at 41 Portland Place.
