Full Description
Situated in the heart of central London, the Institute of Contemporary Arts is a vibrant venue with views over The Mall, Big Ben and London Eye. The Nash and Brandon Rooms are filled with original Regency plasterwork and feature floor to-ceiling windows that open out onto three balconies overlooking St James’s Park. Designed by John Nash these beautiful and versatile spaces can host civil ceremonies and weddings for up to 90 guests seated in one room, 150 across the two, as well as standing receptions and parties for up to 150 guests. The Carlton House Terrace event entrance has access to the private square garden opposite which is also available for reception drinks and photographs. Event organisation and catering is provided exclusively by world-renown caterers Arnold & Henderson, who run the highly acclaimed Rochelle Canteen, based in Shoreditch’s Rochelle School, now also at the ICA. Melanie Arnold & Margot Henderson have been organising and catering celebrations for over 25 years and no brief is too big or too small for their in-house team to organise from start to finish, including menus, drinks, staffing, flowers, lighting, music and entertainment.
