It’s about time you were thinking about the perfect venue for your annual awards ceremony later this year and understand that your choice of venue is the foundation for the perfect event – which is why we’ve got the perfect shortlist of London venues for you. And all are heavy-weight contenders, you can be assured of that.

Magazine London

Magazine is a striking blank canvas providing endless branding and production opportunities and an iconic East London skyline featuring Canary Wharf. While Space 2 works perfectly for the main awards ceremony accommodating up to 1,360 guests, Mezzanine 2 screams VIP area with its stained timber decking, black steel railings and impeccable views of the River Thames. And there’s a whole host of outdoor space to play with if you’re hosting an awards ceremony in the summer months.

The Brewery

Arguably one of London’s leading event venues, this prestigious site blends state-of-the-art systems with 18th century architecture to create a dynamic backdrop for up to 700 guests to enjoy an exciting awards night. Hire the Porter Tun exclusively with its 170-foot king post timber roof which works perfectly for large scale awards dinners and the adjoining mezzanine, perfect for pre-dinner drinks. And if you’re looking for a smaller VIP area or a cool after-party space, why not hire Grubstreet Author – The Brewery’s uber cool sister property next door.
