The National Theatre on London’s South Bank is to open its Green Room restaurant for private hire from 28 September 2015 through to 24 February 2016. Set within a sustainable urban garden, the space can accommodate up to 200 guests.
The venue space includes props from productions, including the chair from One Man Two Guvnors, the original programme and Ted’s whip from War Horse and a chair from This House.
The restaurant, bar and garden were created by local social enterprise Coin Street Community Builders, together with the National Theatre, in December 2014 to utilise a piece of unused land. The Green Room is a temporary structure and will run for five years, until the site is required for permanent development.
London Breakfast Meetings Week is also back at the NT for 2015, and rooftop venue The Deck is will be putting breakfast meetings firmly on its menu 5–9 October.
Charley Taylor-Smith, head of hospitality events and commercial business development at The Deck says: “We have seen first-hand the benefits of opening up our venue for breakfast events, and we are committed to backing London Breakfast Meetings Week and helping other venues do the same. We intend to support and promote the week and our open morning will highlight all the possibilities available to venues considering holding a breakfast event. We look forward to uniting with other London venues and being part of this joint venture.”
