The Library

The Library is a grand, adaptable space located on Level 1. It offers a maximum capacity of 500 people in reception-style – but it may also be combined with the adjoining Lecture Hall to cater for events of up to 1,000 guests.

Its notable features include impressive triple height ceilings, natural daylight, and optional black-out facilities – providing a versatile setting to host conferences, larger seminars, exhibitions, and even graduation ceremonies.

The Library is also directly accessible from the Grand Foyer, which can be used as a convenient registration area if required.

Menus and catering

Catering in the Library is as flexible as the room itself, and we have an extensive range of menus for you to choose from. These range from canapé and grazing menus to bowl food, buffet options, and street food – all partnered with an equally extensive drinks list. Or, if you would prefer a bespoke menu, we can also work with our on-site catering partner, KUDOS to create it for you.

Catering and refreshments are usually set up in the Library or in a separate breakout area, depending on your preference.

@CentralHall Welcome! Events industry margins are usually very healthy so it's heartening to see a London venue paying staff fairly.
