Golden Era of China-UK
In September 2019 the “Beautiful China Beautiful Britain” exhibition took place in our Library commemorating the Golden Era of China-UK Relationships. 2019 marked the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, the 65th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Britain. This exhibition demonstrated this golden era between China and Britain.
An opening ceremony was held and attended by distinguished guests including Ambassador Liu Xiaoming. The exhibition pieces came from “China Pictorials”, the Seal Engraving Art and Calligraphy Exhibition “Twenty-Four Solar Terms” series by Luo Pengpeng, and Photographic Art Exhibition.
In April 2018 Huawei’s Chinese office held a Harry Potter themed Award Ceremony in the Great Hall. This was the first time we hosted a seated awards dinner in the Great Hall for over 230 people, the space and the themeing in the hall looked fantastic.
Back in 2012 we also hosted Huawei’s UK office annual Winter Concert at the venue. Multi-award winning musical theater starts Elaine Page and Ruthie Henshall performed together for the first time at the event.
Chinese International Film Festival
Central Hall Westminster hosted the London Award Ceremony for the Chinese International Film Festival in early 2014. This is a very prestigious high-profile annual event, the UK equivalent of the BAFTA awards.
The grand event took place in our Great Hall, followed by a reception which was attended by the global media plus top-billed actors including Fan Bingbing.
China Conservatory Orchestra
The orchestra performed their concert named Melody Flows in front of more than 2,000 people in the Great Hall during the summer of 2015.
The Director of the Orchestra had previously attended the International Film Festival and was so impressed by our venue that he booked this concert with us.
In addition to the enjoyment of the beautiful music that was played, the event also promoted and encouraged people to study music as well as keep the teaching of the use of traditional Chinese musical instruments alive.
