By Anna Wolfram

Westminster Venue Collection is delighted to welcome two new members to its marketing consortium – Vue West End and Lincoln’s Inn.

Vue West End, in the heart of London’s bustling Leicester Square, has hosted premieres of some of the country’s cinematic favourites over the years. Aside from its obvious first-class capabilities as a nine-screen cinema, Vue’s exceptional facilities lend themselves to hosting conferences, presentations, meetings and private screenings.

With screens seating between 79-270 guests, Vue can offer outstanding flexibility for private and corporate events, hiring out individual or multiple screens, or even the entire site for sole use. Vue’s leading technology allows for seamless presentations in high definition, with the ability to link screens to multiple sites around the country. Event planners can also recreate their own red-carpet experience for guests in the prestige of Leicester Square with private catering available for up to 300 people in the bar area at the venue.

James King, conference sales manager at Vue West End, said: “Vue is excited to get started working with Westminster Venue Collection and the other members involved in the group. With an ever-growing marketplace, it’s a great opportunity to promote Vue to a wide variety of event bookers, as well as providing an alternative product to those searching in the Westminster area. We look forward to welcoming a new pool of event professionals through our doors for site visits and events in the future.”

Epitomising British elegance, Lincoln’s Inn sits in a tranquil eleven-acre estate on the edge of Holborn, boasting distinctive ‘old Legal London’ architecture and a remarkable array of historic halls alongside contemporary meeting facilities. From innovative fine-dining experiences to wedding receptions, small syndicate workshops and major conferences, the events team are well-versed in hosting an occasion to wow the masses.

With around 800 years of history and a characterful composition of Grade I and II listed buildings, the venue’s brand-new conference centre is a charming contrast to Lincoln’s Inn renowned regal tone. The eminent nineteenth century Great Hall recently reopened for events following a series of renovation works to rejuvenate the architectural beauty of the Tudor Revival style, hosting up to 250 guests for dinner or 400 for a reception. The perfectly preserved Old Hall also has an appealing grandeur, hosting up to 200 guests.

Kirsten Kruls, events and marketing manager at Lincoln’s Inn, said: “We’re thrilled to be joining Westminster Venue Collection alongside such a range of the most prestigious venues in London. Following a three-year refurbishment closure and the upcoming launch of our brand-new conference space, the Ashworth Centre, the collection will offer brilliant exposure for our historic venue within the borough and industry. We look forward to sharing best practice, collaborating with like-minded event venues and taking part in the collection’s unmissable annual showcase.”

Rachel Azzopardi, chair of Westminster Venue Collection, said: “We are delighted to have these two fabulous new venues on-board. Two very strong additions to the collection, they’re both a great example of the vast spectrum of venues that Westminster has to offer, demonstrating both modernity and the classical, with the highest standards intact. This brings our total number to 35 members, from unique private members’ clubs and luxury hotels to celebrated attractions and historic institutes.”
