Central London Venue Goes Single-Use Plastic Free in 2019

Located just off London's South Bank, 15Hatfields is an award winning sustainable venue which offers a range of contemporary, flexible and stylish event spaces.

The venue was assessed by Green Tourism and awarded Gold for the continued commitment to sustainable best practice. In 2019, 15Hatfields has promised to go completely single-use plastic free.

15Hatfields was named Zoological Society of London’s #OneLess Pioneer of Moment after their work in London to reduce the use of single-use plastic bottles. They did this through the promotion of free water refill points in venues and spaces across London's South Bank.

15Hatfields was one of the first venues in London to have a free public water refill station and has encouraged other businesses around London's South Bank and Bankside to join the #OneLess campaign by doing the same.

As a result of #OneLess and other businesses joining the initiative, Sadiq Khan recently announced that 100 new drinking fountains will be built throughout London in 2019/20 for the public.


15Hatfields has not only removed the use of single-use plastic bottles in the venue but have taken many steps towards reducing the use of plastic since opening in 2008, including:

• No plastic straws available in the venue
• No plastic water bottles used
• Free onsite water refill station, preventing the use of new single-use plastic bottles
• Raw cane sugar bought in 25 kg paper sacks instead of smaller individual plastic packets
• Tea bags supplied by Teapigs, which are made from 100% compostable corn starch
• No plastic cling film used for food and catering
• No plastic eating utensils used

You can expect environmentally friendly touches throughout the venue, from organic and locally sourced catering, an in-house re-fillable water filtration system, Community2Community Coffee, carpet made from goat’s hair to recycled seat belt cushion covers.

With flexible and functional spaces that can cater from 2 – 730 delegates, 15Hatfields has room to fit any occasion. Whether you are looking to hold a small meeting, a conference for 200+, an intimate evening reception, product launch, dry hire or exclusive private hire - the team at 15Hatfields can cater to your event needs.
