Foyer and Crush Hall - Banqueting Halls and Dinner Dance Venues
First impressions matter, and visitors entering the foyer of the Senate House – which leads directly into the Crush hall, the awe-inspiring space at the heart of the building – are always delighted to receive a warm welcome in such opulent surroundings.
The Crush Hall was designed to impress. Completed in 1938, its elegant, marbled grandeur and gold leaf point to its origins as a ceremonial space, though today it is more often used as a stylish hub for conferences and events. Perfectly placed between the Beveridge Hall and Macmillan Hall, it provides ample opportunity for delegates to talk and network. This grand, historic location welcomed virtually every significant world figure in the second half of the 20th Century, from Winston Churchill to Desmond Tutu. Now, as one of London’s most striking spaces, the Crush Hall plays host to conferences and film crews alike, and is also a venue for London Fashion Week. Whether used as an impressive reception and registration area for major events, as an inspiring exhibition space or transformed into the glittering location for a cocktail party, this stately, versatile and timeless location epitomises the Senate House experience.
