Completed in 1860, the Floral Hall, as it was then known, was used as a flower market during the day and transformed into an events venue in the evening. Since its restoration in 1997, the Paul Hamlyn Hall has been the iconic host to some of the capital’s most glittering parties and dinners, including the GQ Men of the Year Awards, the Rolex Protégé Programme Awards and the Orange British Academy Film Awards, more commonly known as the BAFTAs. The Paul Hamlyn Hall and adjoining Davies Terrace has limited availability due to our packed performance schedule. With only a few available nights each year, any evening event held here is instantly an exceptional occasion.
