The National Theatre, one of London’s most prestigious and iconic landmarks, has unveiled its new wedding packages. These will be available at the soon to launch rooftop events space, The Deck, available to book now for events taking place from 6 August 2018.
Set against the iconic urban architecture and statement concrete backdrops of the theatre, the stunning new venue offers breath-taking panoramic vistas across London.
The new space boasts a large reception area wrapped with floor to ceiling glass panels which can be retracted on warmer days to create a free-flowing space onto the private outdoor terrace, meaning the spectacular view can be enjoyed whatever the weather.
The National Theatre’s in-house food and drink department will cater all events held at The Deck, blending the creativity of the theatre and passion of the London food scene to create exciting and inspired seasonal menus, using sustainably sourced ingredients where possible.
Weddings will benefit from state-of-the-art lighting and AV which has been specially designed and installed by the National Theatre’s Sound and Lighting departments, allowing couples to tailor the atmosphere, from intimate low lighting to vibrant discotheque.
Once complete, The Deck will be able to accommodate up to 110 seated guests for a ceremony and up to 100 people for a seated menu or, for a more relaxed setting, up to 120 for a barbecue or 170 for a standing reception. Wedding guests will also, for the first time, be able to dance the night away at the venue, as the floor has been specially modified for dancing.
Fleur Burrows-Jones, Commercial Operation Sales and Marketing Manager at National Theatre comments: “We have spent a lot of time carefully and lovingly redeveloping The Deck to create the ideal space for memorable occasions and can’t wait to unveil the new venue and welcome the first couples later this year. With its stunning views and fresh contemporary feel, we have no doubt that The Deck will be one of the most sought-after wedding venues on the South Bank.”
Wedding packages start from £85 (+VAT) per person and are available for bookings of 50 to 170 guests. Couples can choose from three packages and will have the option to customise their big day with extras such as a photobooth, bespoke cocktails or an unlimited drinks package.
