Venue hire

The Geffrye’s expansive front lawns offer a blank-canvas outdoor event venue, and an incredibly rare green space so close to the City. Shaded by impressive London Plane trees and set against the backdrop of Grade I listed almshouses, this is a truly unique venue with which to impress your guests. The central location and excellent transport links make the Geffrye front lawns ideal for a broad range of events, from drinks receptions, performances, brand engagement, large-scale dining and foodie festivals.

The Georgian Room is an elegant panelled room, decorated in early Georgian style and hung with paintings from the museum’s collection. This dedicated events space plays perfect host to more intimate events; whether that be private dining, a workshop or business meeting. The room opens out onto the front lawns, giving guests an extra space to enjoy during the warmer months of the year. Why not plan a low-key outdoor drinks reception to start your event?

Our team can support the planning of your event, whether large or small, and link you with our catering and production partners.
