The Paul Hamlyn Hall daytime events

During Open Up

The Royal Opera House is undergoing an exciting project to enhance the experience of everyone coming to our iconic Covent Garden building.

The redesign of public areas as part of Open Up will provide even more impressive spaces for innovative, bespoke private and corporate events.

During this building period, the Paul Hamlyn Hall is unavailable for hire until early 2018. Make sure you are one of the first to know when booking opens for 2018 by signing up to our mailing list here.

Completed in 1860, the Floral Hall, as it was known then, was used as an exotic flower market during the day and as an events venue in the evening.

Restored in 1997 this history is carried on today and the space continues to hold events as fabulous and stunning as the surroundings. With its magnificent barrelled roof and stunning ironwork the room is ideal for those wishing to leave a lasting impression on their guests. This light and spacious venue is perfectly suited for lunches, conferences, award ceremonies and launches.
