Wellcome Collection to re-open for events in March

Wellcome Collection
Wellcome Collection, the free destination for the incurably curious, is now taking bookings and is set to reopen for events on 1st March 2015 after the completion of a £17.5 million refurbishment of the venue, including its event spaces and conference centre.

The renovation was masterminded by award-winning architects Wilkinson Eyre and will draw on the destination’s reputation of highlighting connections between medicine and art. The London venue’s centrepiece is the Henry Wellcome Auditorium, which is paired with the Williams Lounge to make a fantastic space for all types of events. Four smaller meeting rooms (Franks, Steel, Dale and Burroughs), all of which are flexible in set-up, are also available for hire.

The Medicine Now gallery, which can host evening drinks receptions, has also been updated and gained a new dynamic staircase with access to the space. The gallery provides a unique backdrop, especially conducive to networking and is ideal for giving attendees an unforgettable event experience.  The event spaces within the conference centre have also been updated in line with Wilkinson Eyre’s holistic approach to the design, using soft furnishings and a bold purple and teal colour palette.

Daniel Caleb, event spaces manager says; “We are very excited to reveal the changes to the venue, they will provide delegates with fresh and reinvigorated spaces to hold their events. Part of Wellcome Collection’s on-going commitment to improving the delegate experience, we hope the refurbishment will highlight the venue as a destination of choice.”
