City Venue of the Month: Saddlers' Hall
1 May 2018 | Kate Bassett
After a run of showcases at our City venues, these culminated in our final one, hosted at the impressive Saddlers’ Hall,
located just a few yards from St. Paul’s Cathedral. As the sun shone (yes there was sun that day!), we welcomed clients to view the variety of spaces
that the Hall has to offer. Below we’ve given a brief outline of what was discussed with clients on the day.
The intimate ground floor Ante Room is perfect as a green room for panel speakers, or as a meeting space for 10.
Heading upstairs to the first floor, guests are greeted by The King’s Champion Saddle, Bridle & Gauntlet, a historical artefact used in the medieval challenge of ‘Throwing Down the Gauntlet’ to the Monarchy, dating back to sixteenth century.
The elegant backdrop of the Classical-styled Great Hall gives ample natural light for conferences, networking drinks or formal dining. Seating up to 150 guests banqueting or 170 theatre style, the Great Hall creates conversation with period furniture and paintings throughout the room.
Moving through to the Front Rooms – a combination of the Livery, Court and Wardens’ Rooms – the rooms were opened up to create a space standing 200 guests, creating an inter-connected catering area for Conferences. For any events requiring breakout areas, each room has its own entrance.
For breakouts, the Court Room can seat up to 28 guests on a boardroom table; the Livery Room gives more flexibility with 36 on a boardroom table, or 60 theatre style; and the Warden Room provides a cosy setting for meetings of 12 guests.
