BAFTA 195 Piccadilly to access St James’ garden for events

BAFTA 195 Piccadilly, the West End home of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, has announced a partnership with its neighbour St James’s Church, allowing the venue to make use of the church’s gardens for hosting private events.
The new partnership has been agreed for 10 occasions per year, making the gardens available for hire between 6:30-9pm on weekdays and 9am-9pm on weekends.
The church was built in the 17th Century by Sir Christopher Wren, and can host up to 150 people in its gardens, with BAFTA hoping for extra business there, including launch parties, pre-dinner and wedding receptions and drinks parties in the space.
“We’re thrilled to be working with St James’s,” says Jenny Bones, Head of Commercial Events at BAFTA 195 Piccadilly. “The gardens make a wonderful al fresco addition to our existing events space, and will further strengthen 195 as one of the West End’s premiere venues.”
“We are delighted to be collaborating with BAFTA 195 Piccadilly,” says the Reverend Lucy Winkett. “St James’s Church has been at the heart of Piccadilly since 1684 and we want to work closely with our neighbours.”
