West End venue RSA House, home of the Royal Society of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, has reported a sharp increase in bookings for summer events over the last three months (March- May 2014). Bookings are up by 30% compared to 2013 figures of the same period. Enquiries for sports related summer events has also increased. On average the RSA events team is receiving around 15 telephone calls per week from organisers requiring the screening of sports matches including football, tennis, golf and motor car racing. 

Tim Barrett-Jolley, sales and marketing manager, RSA House said: “We are witnessing great demand for summer events and hospitality with a strong emphasis on the screening of sports matches, particularly the World Cup. We have received bookings and enquiries for imminent sports tournaments including events with Wimbledon screenings.”  

On 17th June Heartwood Investment Management hosted an afternoon conference utilising the Durham Street Auditorium. A summer party followed later in the Vaults with the World Cup Brazil v Mexico game streamed onto a large plasma screen. Brazilian flags decorated the event space with South American beers and traditional dishes served including Brazilian cod fish fritters, empanadas of spicy beef and chicken mole and corn toacos filled with spicy pulled pork or refried beans and guacamole.  

Frances Crozier, intermediary support associate, Heartwood said: “RSA House exceeded my expectations and provided a fantastic space to host both our conference and evening summer social. There is great buzz around the World Cup and we enjoyed the all the action with authentic South American food and beer adding to the whole experience.”  

World Cup fever has seen more event organisers opt for food and beverage of the host country. RSA has devised a menu of traditionally inspired street food and bowl food options based on customary starters and mains. Contemporary British and fusion menus are available for forthcoming sports tournaments.  

RSA House boasts 13 event spaces combining period features, contemporary design and advanced technology. The venue can cater for large events for 200 and intimate events for between 14 and 50 guests.
