Eventim Apollo Venue Hire
The Apollo is known all over the world for hosting live events for the biggest musicians and comedians in history. The removable, split level flat floor means that the space can also play host to dinners, award ceremonies, fashion events, weddings, product launches, film premiers, private parties and more. This restored art deco venue never fails to impress and the stunning foyer bars can host drinks receptions before or after the main event in the spectacular auditorium. Hire is always exclusive and the space is never shared. The venue can seat 720 guests for dining events, 1,500 guests for standing receptions or up to 3,350 guests theatre style.Packages
Our legendary live venue, which has hosted global superstars including David Bowie, Kate Bush and The Rolling Stones, and staged sell-out runs from comedians Michael McIntyre and Billy Connolly, has revealed a new high-tech flooring system which is now available to book for a diverse range of events, from awards ceremonies and weddings, to cutting-edge product launches and fashion shows.
The auditorium provides a stunning backdrop to any event. Originally designed as an Art Deco cinema, this versatile space seamlessly fuses high-tech sound and lighting with 1932 grandeur. The plasterwork and cornicing is a work of art but it’s fully operational Compton pipe organ that really steals the show.
