What outdoor events can we host?

● Summer parties
 
● Team building events 
 
● Evening drinks receptions

Managed outdoor event catering 

 
If your event requires catering, our skilled and organised teams will work with you to produce the dishes or bar configuration you wish to use. Our chefs are highly trained, inventive and use only the finest quality ingredients that are sourced responsibly. With decades of outdoor catering experience we can deliver a succinct kitchen-to-table service that runs seamlessly every time. 
 

Wet weather alternative provided

 
Outdoor events can be heavily influenced by the weather and unfortunately this is an uncontrollable factor. When you book an outdoor event with UoL we are committed to your event’s success. We’ll allocate use of the elegant adjacent Senate House as an equivalent space for your planned event should the weather turn unfavourably on the day. 
 
In the wake of Covid-19 we have also attained both Visit Britain’s “Good to go” and “AIM Secure” accreditations. These marks of approval officially acknowledge that our facilities, hygiene standards and safety measures are above board for all of our inside spaces. This means that you can have full peace of mind on safety if an indoor wet weather alternative is used.
