Dinners and Awards
AT BATTERSEA ARTS CENTRE
A DINNER AND AWARDS VENUE IN SOUTH LONDON
Our historic, beautifully restored Grand Hall is available for sit-down dinners and large award ceremonies. After the fire of 2015, our beautiful Grand Hall has been restored to more than its former glory, boasting an increased capacity, an advanced technical infrastructure and a resplendent setting.
With a seated capacity of 350, we welcome new events and reimagine existing ones with flair and creativity.
At our heart, we are an arts venue and we see all events as productions in their own right.
Food naturally takes a starring role in banqueting events and we take pride in the professionalism of our catering arm. Our in-house team are well rehearsed at running a smooth service operation, ensuring your guests are treated to fantastic service, while surrounded by the atmosphere and drama of Battersea’s old town hall.
We also work with a small but select number of external caterers who know our venue and always love the opportunity to bring something new to the table.
Recent events include the British Council, the Education Achievement Awards for Children in Care, the Off West End Awards (Offies) and the Youth Music UK Awards.
