The refurbished Carisbrooke Hall at the Victory Services Club (VSC), London, will officially re-open on 15 September.

The hall is the largest events space at the venue, able to host up to 300 guests. It will be used for Christmas parties, receptions and conferences.

Air commodore Nigel Beet CBE, CEO of the VSC said: "We’re very excited to officially launch our refurbished Carisbrooke Hall as part of a special year celebrating the Club’s 110th anniversary. We are absolutely delighted with the results and look forward to officially unveiling the space in the new year."

The three-month, £1million refurbishment has seen the suite fitted out with a large retractable flat-screen television, Creston control panels which offer complete user control over the audio and video sources and a new video system which is viewable on both the projector screen and the control panels.

The décor used in the newly refurbished Carisbrooke Hall and adjacent Bar is themed around the popular Art Deco style. This classical theme is focused on highly stylised natural, geometric forms and ornaments with strong symmetry. 

The VSC recently published research which suggested that the majority of events organisers would not give a venue a second chance if they received bad service the first time.
