Over 200 attend high-profile event to launch newly refurbished Salters Hall

More than 200 leading figures from some of London’s most high-profile businesses attended the launch of the newly refurbished Salters Hall in the City of London earlier this week (22nd June).

The launch, hosted by Inn or Out Events, the venue’s specialist and exclusive events caterer; and online venue marketplace, Hire Space, who exclusively manage events at the venue, celebrated the redesign of the building, giving guests the opportunity to tour the unique venue.

As part of the refurbishment, the venue will be home to largest new open landscaped area created in the City of London since the First World War. The new garden, inspired by the works of late interior designer David Hicks, is due to open in 2017.

Following its refurbishment, the venue can now host a broad range of events, dinners and conferences, and is expected to be used by companies looking for a diverse, flexible and unique space in the centre of the City of London.

Given its unique setting and structure, the venue will also be available for weddings and seasonal functions.

Having closed for refurbishment in December 2013, Salters’ Hall has reopened as part of a wider redevelopment of London Wall Place. During non-event days, the Hall will be open to the general public for the first time in history, enabling them to access its archives and learn about its extensive history.

Visitors will also be able to view the stunning new Pavillion which has 24 glass roof panels and enables guests to see the building’s upper levels.

The hall has been used as a commercial events space since the building was originally opened in 1976 and has become an integral part of the City’s conference and events scene, playing host to numerous meetings and launches. It has also been home to many Livery dinners, where Livery companies without official Halls (circa 110) come to celebrate their regular meetings and events.

It is now home to The Salters’ Company, a 600-year-old livery company and one of London’s Great Twelve Livery Companies. Its workers pioneered the use of salts and the preparation of chemical mixtures in food.

Sean Ritson, Inn or Out Events, said: “We are delighted to be working with our partners at Salters Hall to help deliver a wonderful event experience. The refurbishment is absolutely stunning and really brings together the tradition and grandeur of the original building, coupled with a very modern and progressive theme.

“The world ‘unique’ is often overused, but the venue has some really stunningly unique features which will prove very popular with those looking for something special for their event, conference or wedding.”

Edward Poland, co-founder of Hire Space, added: “Huge efforts have been put into sympathetically restoring Salters’ Hall and the result is an impressive multi-functional venue that also highlights its importance and history. We are very excited to be managing the space as an exclusive venue as it has so much to offer clients, from its traditional interiors to its unrivalled outside space in such a prime location, ideal for event organisers in the City.”

David Morris, clerk at the Salters Company, said: "We are delighted that the redevelopment of Salters’ Hall not only reflects its uniqueness as a modern brutalist building, but also blends in with the exciting new London Wall Place development and allowing greater public access."
