About this space

As one of London’s largest flat floor spaces, Macmillan Hall is perfectly suited to an elegant banquet, conference, exhibition or even a film shoot. This space has a capacity of 200 when arranged in a theatre-style layout.

The space is fully equipped for conferences and exhibitions and benefits from programmable lighting.

With the adjacent Beveridge and Crush Halls, you have an inspiring and integrated venue complete with breakout areas.

The 'Crush Hall' with it's iconic staircase can also be hired alongside the MacMillan Hall to create an open reception space. As the Foyer at Senate House, it inspires visitors entering the venue, with its warm marble backdrop and elegant art deco styling.

Complemented by a dramatic staircase leading up to spacious landings, the foyer and crush hall combine to create a stunning space for networking, pre-dinner drinks, or exhibitions.
