Six new spaces with capacities ranging from 10 to 60 people will be available at Admiral’s House, which will complement the banqueting rooms already available at the ORNC.
The largest new space, the Hardwick Room, will accommodate 60 guests for dinner and will work in conjunction with the adjoining Wren Room, offering delegates an alternative space for a drinks reception. The famed Painted Hall can accommodate up to 400 dinner guests.
As part of the conservation and renovation work, disabled access and toilet facilities for guests on the ground floor of the 17th Century interior have been provided and fire capacity of the space has been increased to allow up to 90 guests. Wi-Fi has also been installed in the four major rooms.
Wayne Spicer, sales manager at the Old Royal Naval College, said: "We’re delighted that Admiral’s House has been so sensitively developed in keeping with the skilled conservation work on other areas of the ORNC and that we can now offer these six spaces to corporate events organisers. The Old Royal Naval College attracts a lot of interest from organisers of high-end events from business districts in London, and the new spaces will add to the choice for planners."
Jo Austin, head of sales at Lime Venue Portfolio, said: "It's brilliant that the ORNC is so dedicated to conserving the history of the venue whilst catering to event organisers’ modern requirements. With great transport links including the DLR and Thames Clipper, this is an exciting new offering in the corporate meetings market."
The venue is part of the Lime Venue Portfolio.
