Set against the cosmopolitan backdrop of central London’s Charing Cross, RSA House combines Georgian splendor with high quality contemporary design. The venue is suitable for all types of events from milestone anniversaries to corporate conferences and is also licensed for weddings.
The Great Room, the building’s largest space, contains ‘Progress of Human Knowledge and Culture’ by renowned 18th century artist James Barry, a sequence of six paintings which provide a stirring backdrop for dinners and receptions. Designed by legendary architect John Adam, it benefits from plenty of natural daylight flooding into the capacious, high-ceilinged rooms.
RSA House also has an atmospheric set of Vaults available for hire. This former riverfront warehouse provides a striking contrast to the grandeur of the rest of the venue, combining stripped-back and exposed brickwork enhanced with uplighting, it offers an alternative space for receptions and product launches.
Commenting on the appointment, Emma Jones, sales & marketing manager at RSA House said: “For over 260 years RSA House has been home to some of the most creative thinkers who have been dedicated to shaping the future through ideas and action. We are absolutely delighted to be a part of Unique Venues of London and to join in such illustrious company! We are very much looking forward to helping promote the consortium and share in knowledge and best practice with like-minded venue representatives.”
RSA House will take its place alongside the other 82 members which include the recently joined British Library, Two Temple Place and the National Gallery.
Lisa Hatswell, general manager of Unique Venues of London, added: “RSA House is a perfect fit within the association, its rich heritage and significance as a cultural institution adds another string to a continually growing membership. We look forward to working with the team there to promote both their hospitality services and the work of Unique Venues of London as a champion of the capital’s historic, landmark and unusual venues scene.”
