The Government has just announced that large meetings and events of 30+ delegates wouldn’t resume on the 1st of October. If you have a 30+ meeting booked from October, please contact our Events Team by email with your booking reference in the subject line. This is a big blow for the events industry, but not all is lost as small meetings for up to 30 delegates are allowed to carry on.
Friends House is one of the very few central London venues to have reopened. And we’ve already hosted a few small meetings, with great feedback from both the organisers and delegates. One of them even told us that they felt “very comfortable” in our venue. It’s amazing for us to hear, as the team has worked very hard to make the venue COVID-secure, while still providing a smooth event experience. So, if you’d like to have a smaller meeting or know someone who’s looking for a small space for their event, we’ll happily welcome you at Friends House.
We follow all the latest Government’s COVID-19 Secure guidelines. The Meetings Industry Association (MIA) and Visit England delivered their COVID-secure accreditations to us: AIM Secure and ‘We’re Good To Go’. Both accreditations recognise the excellence of our COVID-safety protocols in terms of cleaning, hygiene, and processes. You can find them all in our COVID-19 resource centre, which we update regularly.
New rules are coming into place in the next few days. As of Thursday 24 September:
Come and meet safely at Friends House!
We have a date! Events will resume on the 17th of May. You can book your meetings and events from that date by contacting our Events team: email@example.com or filling our booking enquiry form. We are looking forward to welcoming you back!
