Paint your perfect event

15 July 2015, by Anne Aitken

The National Gallery is now available to hire, even without corporate membership.

As an approved cater at the National Gallery, it’s welcome news that this wonderful venue is now making its spaces more widely available to event planners. Up until recently a client needed to be a corporate member to take advantage of these stunning event spaces but from this summer, the galleries can be booked by everyone. 

We are all looking forward to celebrating the launch of this new approach at the Gallery’s Summer Masterpiece party. Guests at this event are being invited to “Step into A Masterpiece” and “travel on a journey from Monet’s magical water-lily garden through the grandeur of 18th century English decadence”. 

Our experience working at the National Gallery is how guests are genuinely stunned by the quantity and quality of the art on view and of the beauty of the rooms and galleries which are available for hire. It feels like such an honour to able to drink and dine immersed in this world famous art collection which includes celebrated artists from Caravaggio’s to Canaletto’s and Van Gogh’s to Velasquez. As caterers, it will be fun for us to be on the receiving end of the hospitality for a change!

There is an incredible variety of beautiful and versatile event spaces available to hire in this majestic building ranging from sumptuous, traditional galleries like the Barry Rooms  to the light and airy Sainsbury Sainsbury Wing reception space where guests can enjoy private viewings of temporary exhibitions. The National Gallery is also perfectly situated in the heart of central London overlooking Trafalgar Square. It’s close to several tube stations and is easily accessible from all over London. Surely the ideal location to paint your perfect event?
