Renowned as the home of scientific research and communication for more than 200 years, we are the proud home of 14 Nobel Prize winners as well as the discovery of 10 chemical elements. The Ri's 400 tiered seating theatre is familiar to those who watch the Ri Christmas Lectures; making it the perfect setting for conferences, lectures and film screenings.

The other rooms can also be booked for a number of different events such as conferences, press releases, dinners, receptions, board meetings, training sessions and seminars.

In-house AV and expert event catering through our partners Elior, one of the leading catering companies in Europe are all services at your disposal. Flexible, professional and complimentary tastings for all confirmed bookings are also another advantage of holding your event here at the Ri!
