When looking for a venue with real ‘wow-factor’ it is hard to beat historical buildings, with grandeur and enduring style from era gone-by such venues offer different features for a variety of events.
None more so that converted church venues; often with soaring pillars and beautifully crafted high ceilings can be transformed in a whoile host of different style to suit any event.
Two of our favourite converted church venues London are One Mayfair and One Marylebone. The Effective Event Solutions team have produced everything from meetings and presentations to gala dinners (pictured at One Mayfair) and sumptuous summer parties within these stunning spaces.
One Mayfair was constructed in the late 1820s as St Mark’s Chruch to ease the shortage of ‘church sittings’ in this area of London, at the time the local population was expanding with the arrival of wealthy country aristocrats seeking city residences.
The Grade 1 listed property welcomes guests through the 34 foot facade (one of the finest pieces of architecture in the city) into it’s grand hall where we can accommodate up to 250 seated or 450 standing. The mezzanine and outdoor terrace provide additional capacity for drinks receptions and networking events.
One Marylebone was built in 1826 as Holy Trinity Chruch on designs from Sir John Soane (one of Britain’s finest architects) to celebrate the defeat of Napoleon. The basic structure of Soane’s design remains to this day and was opened as an event venue in 2008.
The converted church venue boast three event space for hire along with landscaped garden, just moments from London’s famous Regent’s Park. The first floor galleries are flooded with natural daylight and can accommodate up to 100 guests for a seated presentation or meal and up to 300 for a standing reception. The grand Soane Hall on ground level can seat 250 for a seated meal and up to 500 for standing reception.
The venue works equally well for smaller events e.g. a grand dinner for around 40-60 on one long table in the centre of the splendid Soane Hall.
