Somerset House Launches Summer Event Offers

14 Feb 2020

Following a stringent tender process consisting of 11 caterers and 4 production companies, we have launched our inaugural summer events packages for the iconic River Terrace, an exceptional location to host your summer event.

The River Terrace is one of our most exclusive event spaces. Set against the spectacular neo-classical backdrop of Somerset House, the River Terrace is a glamorous London setting to entertain guests in the warmer months, with fabulous views across the Thames. However, The Seamen’s Hall is included as a wet weather contingency along with jumbrellas should the British weather prevail.

This summer we've partnered with some of our brilliant accredited suppliers to create exclusive summer event packages and make the planning process as easy as it can be for all event organisers. In other words, we've done all the hard work for you!

There are a range of catering options available from esteemed contemporary London caterers; with barbeque options from Clement Worrall, canapés and bowls from Alexander & Björck or innovative food stations from Bubble. Production house FullCircle is on hand to provide a range of furniture and entertainment options from DJ’s to roving bands, large games and magicians, venue hire of the River Terrace is on top.

We have made pricing simple and transparent. It is extremely quick to see what an event will cost, whilst there are plenty of flexible elements to play with, and the possibility to enhance as required. It makes it easy to see that having an event here is much more accessible than people perhaps realise. It couldn’t be simpler to have a summer party here. We have also included drinks in the packages, so all you need to do is bring people and make a few decisions! The rest is done!

The packages are available from June – September for parties of 150-500 guests from 18.45 - 22.00 though times can be extended for additional cost. You can download the brochure here.

The grandeur and heritage of Somerset House, coupled with the expertise of our team, offer an unrivalled location for an unforgettable event.
