Friends House Hospitality a finalist at London Venue Awards 2018

We are pleased to announce that Friends House and The Light are finalists for the London Venue Awards 2018. Friends House is nominated for Best Venue Customer Service – 300+ attendees, theatre style, while The Light is a nominee for the Most Versatile London Venue – 1,000+ attendees.  The finals will be held in October.


Launched in 2014, The Light is our auditorium, which can seat up to 1000 delegates. There are four different layouts available – theatre, banquet, cabaret, and exhibition. It has its own dedicated reception area for privacy. Customers in The Light can also work with an AV technician, who can help with initial ideas to creating a seamless event.

At Friends House, we strive to provide a professional, friendly service – and our customer service team are integral to that. Our commitment to our customers is driven by Quaker values such as Sustainability, Integrity, and Simplicity. These values helped us create The Friendly Way in 2016, which outlines how we live up to these commitments to our customers and ourselves.


CEO of Friends House Hospitality Paul Grey said:

 “I am so proud that we have been nominated in two categories at this year’s London Venue Awards. The team have once again demonstrated their dedication to delivering excellent customer service. It is also very exciting that The Light’s versatility has been acknowledged; it is a beautiful space that offers various set-ups and configurations to our customers.”     

Over the last 11 years, Friends House has been recognised for its high standards as a venue, as well as its environmental and sustainability work.  In 2017 we received the Bronze Award at the London Venue Awards for Best New or Refurbished Venue. Friends House Restaurant was also recognised at the Food Made Good Awards for its work supporting the community and maintains a three-star rating from the Sustainable Restaurant Association.
