With limited opportunities to bring teams together over the last two summers due to the pandemic, we have re-launched our ‘Build Your Own’ summer party package for 2022. Summer parties are the perfect occasion for teams to get together again face-to-face to rebuild bonds, boost morale and reboot company culture.
RIBA summer event
At RIBA, at 66 Portland Place, we’re prioritising a more pared-back style for this year’s summer parties with a focus on getting teams together to spend some well-needed time in each other’s company in a relaxed, laid-back environment. Our ‘Build Your Own’ experience – a subtle nod to our architectural roots – features multiple F&B options at different price points that can be selected as a standalone package, or in conjunction with another to suit budget and tastes.
You’ll also have a choice of our architecturally stunning event spaces – including the Florence Hall and terrace, RIBA Gallery or Aston Webb Room. You’ll also have a choice of our architecturally stunning event spaces – including the Florence Hall and terrace, RIBA Gallery or Aston Webb Room. The Florence Hall is our most popular space for summer events with its floor to ceiling windows, and tranquil outdoor terrace meaning your team can make the most of the warmer weather!
However, if you’re not comfortable relying on the Great British weather, we also have the RIBA Gallery which features etched floor to ceiling windows and Art Deco detailing, as well as access to the adjacent landing – a triple height atrium space around a grand sweeping staircase, for larger events. For more intimate summer parties or dinners, the Aston Webb Room is steeped in history and features large windows which fill the room with light and offer grand views of the tree-lined Portland Place.
Summer is the season for socialising, making it the perfect time for a company party or get-together, not least because it is a proven way to support workplace morale, relationship-building and staff retention. Summer parties are naturally more informal than a big end of year celebration, so our ‘Build your Own’ package is the ideal option.
Our unique Art Deco building makes the perfect party venue in London, suitable for Christmas parties, Summer parties and bespoke events including birthday, anniversary and retirement celebrations, awards ceremonies or private dining.
We offer Art Deco glamour combined with the best of 21st century service, and have a wide range of spaces to suit every event type, including large party spaces, beautiful private dining rooms, roof terraces and an auditorium.
Whether you want a bespoke celebration planned down to the smallest detail, or a straightforward solution for your office party, we work with you to come up with the perfect event package, covering catering, entertainment, event management, styling and production – and your event manager will be there on the day to ensure everything runs smoothly.
