London-based vent caterer and venue management company Searcys has added the National Army Museum in Chelsea to its collection of venues.
Searcy’s will cater at The Café, which is open to the public, coupled with providing events management services for business meetings and other special occasions.
Colin Gray, operations director for Searcys, said: “The National Army Museum boasts state-of-the-art galleries, learning and research facilities. The venue has recently undergone a major redevelopment to create an inspiring space that connects people with the British Army.”
Gray added that the Searcys menus would be based on ‘British classics’ with food served inspired by British culture and the history of the British Army. Food will be prepared in the on-site kitchen using local ingredients and produce sourced from sustainable suppliers.
The Café at the National Army Museum can accommodate up to 140 people.
The venue’s event spaces include the second-floor Boardroom, with views over the Royal Hospital, and the new Atrium at the centre of the Museum.
Searcys has also brought St Paul’s Cathedral into its portfolio, recently opening Wren’s Pantry at St Paul’s. Coming soon will be Wren’s Tearoom and event spaces available for hire include the Wren Suite, Temple Bar, Nelson Chamber, North Churchyard, Chapter House and The Crypt, which can accommodate up to 250 guests for a seated dinner or a standing reception.
