The National Army Museum features unique and flexible event spaces available for bookings. From the top-floor boardroom, with exceptional views over the Royal Hospital, through to the spectacular new atrium at the centre of the museum. The newly transformed venue will be available for dinners, drinks receptions, conferences, and more intimate dinners.
Incorporating large expanses of glass and open to the Atrium, the Foyer is a light-filled, contemporary space at the front of the building; the glazed façade on the east side overlooks Sir John Soane’s Grade II* listed stables. High ceilings and neutral colours make this architectural space an ideal backdrop for production and branding.
The Foyer can be hired individually for evening receptions and networking events, or used in conjunction with other spaces in the Museum for pre-dinner drinks, registration and display stands. It has direct access to both the Atrium and Café.
150 seated dinner
With a soaring glass ceiling, high-level walkways and a fabric installation inspired by the ribbons on medals, the Atrium is a dynamic, contemporary space flooded with natural light at the heart of the Museum. Staggered across floors and running from the front to the rear of the building, it creates a strong visual link between spaces.
The Atrium is available alone for evening drinks receptions, presentations and seated dinners. Used in conjunction with the Foyer and Café, it can accommodate a dessert buffet or dance floor, or be set up as an after-dinner lounge area.
90 seated dinner
The Café is located on a mezzanine level at the front of the Museum; a glazed balustrade overlooks the Atrium. A light, airy space, its design is modern and stylish with a glass façade looking onto Royal Hospital Road.
The L-shaped Café is made up of a series of flexible seating zones and can be hired as one large space or split into two sections (C1 and C2) for smaller events. As well as a fully equipped kitchen, it has its own toilet facilities.
C1: 170 reception, 80 seated dinner
C2: 120 reception, 80 seated dinner
As part of engaging a wider audience, a changing programme of exhibitions is housed in the Temporary Exhibition Gallery. This space also lends itself to events, and depending on the display in place, can be used to host drinks receptions or gala dinners.
Please note that capacities are for the empty gallery, and are subject to change depending on the exhibition in place.
