Contemporary events space launching in 2015Friends House have today unveiled the identity of its newest events space. The standalone venue, with its dedicated entrance, reception and facilities, will be known as The Light. Currently under construction, this inspiring and contemporary destination venue for London is due for completion later this year, before formally launching in January 2015.
Redevelopment of the 1,000-capacity auditorium and launch of its dedicated website will further enhance the venue’s conference and events portfolio in the heart of Euston.
An unveiling of The Light will take place at International Confex this week and will showcase the unique concept and build of the venue which has sustainability at its core. Featuring a distinctive ‘skylight’, the venue incorporates energy-efficient lighting, wall insulation and heat-exchange systems, making it one of the greenest conference and event facilities in the capital.
Paul Grey, Head of Facilities at Friends House commented: “We are eagerly following the progress of The Light’s transformation. It is with great excitement that we look forward to unveiling the venue’s new identity. The Light is not only a contemporary events space; it is also an important place of history at the heart of the Quaker’s centrally-managed operations in Britain. As such, respect for heritage and the environment are of paramount importance to us.”
Meeting the increasing demand from delegates and event organisers for large and versatile venues, The Light has the capacity to host a variety of configurations from theatre and cabaret style meetings, to graduations, product launches and exhibitions.
“The Light offers delegates a refreshing, sustainable approach to meetings and will be the place to go in London for professionally-delivered events.”
