The Paul Hamlyn Hall evening 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, the Paul Hamlyn Hall is synonymous with hosting some of the capitals most glittering parties and dinners; from the GQ Men of the Year Awards, to the Rolex Protégé Programme Awards, to the Orange British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA's). Because of our packed performance schedule, the room's availability is limited, often to only 12 nights a year, making every evening event held there even more exceptional.

The Paul Hamlyn Hall also hosts a handful of weddings. Find out more about weddings at the Royal Opera House.
