Rules of the space

No smoking in the building


The impressive 20th Century building sits in the heart of Marylebone, minutes away from Baker Street in Central London.

Originally built like a Swedish gymnastics college in the 1900s, it is now a hub of cultural activity with a varied program of events from classical concerts to theatrical performances.

Housed within this unique venue are several meeting and event spaces that can be hired individually or exclusively.

The Great Hall is the venue's centrepiece: with high ceilings, natural daylight and wooden floors, this blank-canvas offers the ultimate flexibility to accommodate any event, from conferences (190 pax.), dinners (160 pax.) and receptions (250 pax.) to the more trendy fashion shows, spectacular product launches.

The Friends and Members Room is a light and airy space offering the perfect extension to events in the Great Hall but also suitable for exhibitions, workshops and receptions for up to 100 guests.
