Southwark Cathedral, on the south bank of the River Thames, close to London Bridge, has been a place of Christian worship for more than 1,000 years. But these days its elegant soaring arches, stained glass windows, 19th century nave and medieval fragments look down, not only on religious services, but on a whole range of events.
Southwark Cathedral offers a choice of six meeting rooms, two beautiful outsides spaces as well as the historic Cathedral interior, unique settings for conferences, meetings and musical and drama performances in historic surroundings. Bright modern conference rooms offer views of the River Thames and the City. The conference and events team are ready to help you plan and the onsite catering partner, Leafi, offers you the best in corporate and event hospitality with a personal touch. Linen, flowers, table settings, musical accompaniment and after-dinner speakers may be booked through the Cathedral and Leafi.
If you haven’t yet booked your company Christmas party, Southwark Cathedral makes a truly magnificent setting, whether for a drinks reception or a dinner.
Southwark Cathedral will be exhibiting at SHOWCASE on 16th October at Glaziers Hall where you can discuss your event requirements with Rose Harding at the exhibition. Contact her in advance to set a time to meet and be sure of the opportunity during the course of a busy, buzzy evening: Rose Harding
Clients who have chosen this beautiful building for their events include:
London Fashion Week (left), PWC, Blackstone Chambers, Times Literary Supplement, Marie Curie, The Alzheimer’s Society, and BBC Proms.
Let us not forget that the Cathedral maintains its primary purpose as a place of prayer and worship. It is the seat of the Bishop of Southwark and it has a rich history and connections to many famous people including William Shakespeare and John Harvard, founder of the famous US university. Services – including weddings and funerals – are still conducted there and the clergy are “delighted to help you to prepare prayerfully for your Civil Partnership”.
