Queen Mary’s Great Hall reopens for events after £6.3m refurb

Following a £6.3m refurbishment and a score of test events, the Great Hall at Queen Mary, University of London is once again open for business.
 
Restored to its art deco glory, the Great Hall offers seating for up to 770 guests over two levels. The lower level features retractable ’bleacher’ seating to aid flexibility, enabling the venue to accommodate a variety of events from theatrical performances to exhibitions, alongside use as a networking, examination or rehearsal space. A key part of the project has been to enhance the support space within the venue, which now features a dedicated box office/registration area, foyer bar/café and outdoor terrace.
 
New theatrical lighting and audio-visual systems have been installed alongside an automatic cooling and ventilation system.
 
A dedicated Great Hall website has been created, providing technical information as well as the ability to download all the information needed to plan an event.
 
Events & Hospitality QM is the in-house events and hospitality brand of Queen Mary, offering over 100 venues for external hire at three sites in the City, Whitechapel and Mile End, in addition to providing hospitality for the College.
