£2.4m invested to launch 20 Bedford Way – a new flexible venue in the heart of London

20 Bedford Way Logan Hall
After a £2.4 million upgrade, ‘20 Bedford Way’, a new bespoke conference, events and performance centre, in the heart of London’s Bloomsbury, opens its doors to external customers.  The landmark building was designed by Denys Lasdun, architect of the National Theatre and is one of the finest examples of ‘Brutalist’ architecture in the UK.

“We have developed the ‘20 Bedford Way’ brand and its accompanying website, to reflect the strength and simplicity of the building and to attract the attention of external conference and event organisers to our excellent, professional facilities,” explained Michael Walker- Head of Residence, Conference and Catering.

  “Clients find this building the perfect ‘blank canvas’ and backdrop to any event; everywhere is light and spacious and the rooms functional and simple with all the very latest AV equipment to hand.”

The flagship facility is the Logan Hall, the custom-built 930 seater lecture theatre and performance space. “It’s rare to find what is effectively a fully operational theatre, available for hire throughout the year, in central London!” says Michael. “But we know it will be popular with a whole new range of clients once they experience what it can do.” 

The single tier construction, large stage, integral AV/sound systems and full lighting rig ensure every event is guaranteed maximum impact.  The Logan Hall now has new AV and projection equipment and the seating and floor coverings have all been updated. The venue has superb acoustics and excellent sight lines, ideal for large conferences, debates, award ceremonies, meetings and exhibitions as well as film screenings.  This impressive room comes with full air conditioning, a house manager, skilled technicians, dressing and green rooms and the Crush Hall for foyer and refreshments.

The investment has renewed the dedicated conference entrance, conveniently located at street level and also added a popular Costa Coffee bar facility to the main reception area, one floor above.  A wide range of flexible catering solutions can be offered to suit any budget or event from wine and canapé receptions in the stylish Crush Hall through to a convenient picnic style “brown bag” lunch to enable delegates to take a break in Bloomsbury’s famous garden squares.

In contrast to the minimalist and functional nature of the building, however, is the friendly, professional and knowledgeable Conference Centre team who ensure clients enjoy a successful event at 20 Bedford Way, in the most cost-effective way possible.

The location of 20 Bedford Way is one of its chief attractions; Euston, Kings Cross and St Pancras railway stations as well as Russell Square, Holborn, Tottenham Court Road and Goodge Street tube stations are all a matter of minutes away providing easy access to all parts of central London and connections to  the UK and Europe.

Day delegate rates start from a competitive £35 + VAT
