Actual event venue bookings

fashion week pre-show event

I am the Events Manager. We produce runway shows during Fashion Week, and we would love to hire your wonderful space for our pre-show event. On the 6th, we would like to hire your space for a day of formal meetings. This will be from 9am-7pm and will be for approximately 12-15 people. We do have an additional query; After the meetings have finished, we would like to hold an industry reception for approximately 50 people. This will be for 2 hours only - 8pm-10pm. We love the outdoor terrace and we wondered whether this was possible? We think your venue would be the perfect place for our events, and we think the models, designers and industry guests attending would also love the space. I hope you can help us to create great events in your great space.

pop-up musical comedy event

I'd like to see this place on Sunday and judge whether it would be cool for a pop-up musical comedy / singer songwriter event for myself and 40 of my closest friends. Beer and wine will be served, most attendees are early 30s- so not raging 20 something animals.
