The British Museum, in the heart of Bloomsbury, displays a permanent collection dedicated to human history, art and culture. For Sponsors and Global Partners, it is a prime location to entertain guests particularly when the event coincides with one of the Museum’s show stopping exhibitions. The variety of unique entrances refresh an annual event with guests arriving through a different entrance each year.
The British Museum is a fantastic venue for international events as there are galleries for almost every country.
Although the venue has the capacity for events with large numbers, our venue specialist, Anna, also loves the impressive Great Court for a dinner with one long table. Anna advises that you shouldn’t be afraid to host an event with smaller numbers as with the right lighting the venue can still be made to feel extremely intimate. The Egypt gallery for example, would be perfect for a dinner for 60 even though the space has the capacity for up to 300 guests!
Reception capacity – 1000
Dinner capacity – 400 (higher if sight lines are not important)
