British Museum Clore Centre for Education
Long celebrated as one of London’s key cultural highlights, the British Museum boasts one of the most extensive collections of historical artefacts in the world and is conveniently situated in London’s buzzing West End. Event planners can party with a conscience, as all revenue generated from venue hire goes back into supporting the Museum and its objectives. Located in the heart of the Museum’s Grade I listed building, the Clore Education Centre offers two impressive state-of-the-art auditoriums seating 323 and 142 respectively. These contemporary spaces, designed by Lord Norman Foster in dramatic red, white stone and grey, are perfect for film screenings, product launches, press briefings, conferences, seminars and live broadcasting.
Complementing the theatre spaces are two elegant curved foyers which echo the Museum’s stunning Great Court and world famous reading room above. The foyers have a spacious feel and provide blank canvas spaces for receptions, lunches and dinners, exhibitions and other interactive elements. Guests may enjoy access to the British Museum galleries, including special collections, during opening hours and the venue can provide a variety of branded and corporate gifts as keepsakes, providing event organisers with the opportunity to create a unique experience.
