When you find yourself in times of (venue-finding) trouble, the team at Hire Space are here for you. And this time, we're particularly excited to share our unique venue of the month: favoured by Pink Floyd, Ed Sheeran, Amy Winehouse, and, of course, The Beatles, it's the one and only Abbey Road Studios!
An unbeatably iconic setting for team-building days, parties, and even conferences, an invitation to an event at this exclusive setting will have invitees clearing their diaries at supersonic speeds - believe us, nothing's going to change your world like having this venue on your radar! From legendary Christmas parties, to conferences with record attendance, here are just some of the events that this fantastic venue is perfect for.
Put stars in the eyes of your gala dinner guests
Finding a venue that gets invitees excited and manages to live up to its hype can be a fine balance, but Abbey Road Studios isn't a spot to let you down. With impressive decor to match its fascinating history, hosting an awards ceremony or gala dinner in the impressive Studio One is a recipe for a successful event. Use the high ceilings to maximum effect with hanging banners or lights, and put the venue's AV equipment to task to project your high achievers or brand onto the screens. Plus, it goes without saying that if music's a centrepiece for your event, there's nowhere better to set your stage!
At just a short walk from St John's Wood, the location's also a win for all guests, with connections to London Bridge on the Jubilee Line, and easy bus routes from all over the city.
Host a chart-topping Christmas party
If you're looking to make history with your next Christmas party, this venue offers a guaranteed leg-up to greatness! Studio One at Abbey Road Studios is a genuinely show-stopping space, with unbeatable acoustics, incredible lighting and production opportunities, and almost 5000 square feet of blank canvas space for you to decorate however you choose. Designed to record orchestras and big bands (the scores for Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars all came to life here), there's plenty of space for dining and dancing, and soaking up the atmosphere of this incredible hall.
It might be a dry-hire venue, but with a professional kitchen and recommended suppliers list, you're in safe hands for laying on a legendary spread, and getting guests well and truly fuelled up for dancing the night away!
Treat your team to a seriously special away day
Pitch up to Abbey Road Studios for an away day and you've done the majority of the work already; after all, there's something in the way it's steeped in musical prestige that's guaranteed to set the right tone for an exceptional day. Whether they're fans of Adele, ABBA, or Anne Ziegler, your team are sure to be awe-struck: this venue has played host to hundreds of the most influential artists of all time, and it's a seriously memorable and inspiring setting to get creativity flowing.
Host the business aspect of your away day in the comfortable, well-equipped Studio Three, before rewarding your team with a tour of the iconic studios they'll never forget. Finally, refuel at the bar and take advantage of the studio's fantastic acoustics to have a boogie to music that was produced in the same room! As an added bonus, the zebra crossing on Abbey Road is fantastic for team photos - makes you wonder why no one's stuck it on an album cover yet...
Give your conference a fresh take
Making your mark on the conference calendar can be a challenge, but host your event at Abbey Road Studios and your date's sure to be circled in red pen. Who in their right mind would pass up the chance to take in the hallowed halls of the venue that shaped their heroes? (Of course, your content's sure to be an equal draw!).
Aside from the ingrained prestige of the venue, its design as a recording studio makes it absolutely untouchable for acoustics. Set large sessions in Studio One, with its capacity of 300 attendees, or produce a smooth hybrid session in Studio Two, with its smaller capacity and giant screens making it ideal for hybrid formats. And with state-of-the-art screens and production equipment, as well as incredibly flexible layouts and staging opportunities across all studios, your guests are guaranteed to be engaged and come away inspired.
With superb facilities living up to its legendary status, this unique spot is the Platinum standard of venues for all kinds of events.
