We can also cater for high-profile, high-impact events of over 2,000 people with ease.
Our Grade II* listed building was first inaugurated as a public meeting space for the Methodist Church in 1912, so hosting successful events is integral to who we are. While Central Hall Westminster continues to be owned by Methodist Central Hall, we now host over 800 diverse events every year. We are particularly well-known for hosting events of cultural significance, such as Stand Up To Cancer, The Late, Late Show and even the very first UN public address in 1946. In fact, there is a very good chance you have seen one of our public events live on television!
