Situated in the heart of London’s Theatreland, yet far enough from the crowds to feel private, The Royal Courts of Justice has built an outstanding reputation over the years for hosting some of the capital’s most esteemed events. Function Fixers are offering you the chance to take advatage of a fantastic, once in a lifetime deal – which includes drinks, catering, entertainment and venue hire! Click Here to find out more, but here’s a few words about this totally stunning venue.
The building itself is a Victorian interpretation of 13th Century Gothic architecture. Full of texture and quirky details, there is imposing stonework, stunning stained glass windows, intricate mosaic marble floors, and elaborate carvings in oak wood paneling.
The biggest and most spectacular events space available for hire is the Great Hall, which is lined with a rare collection of enormous portraits – including works by Wright, Shee and Lawrence – of past Lord Chancellors and keepers of the Great Seal. The Great Hall really is something totally spectacular. Like an old cathedral, its huge arched ceilings and sturdy columns instantly provide a dramatic backdrop, and can be manipulated and personalised easily with some simple lighting. Able to cater for anywhere between 100 and 800 guests, this versatile and theatrical space is sure to make quiet an impression.
The building also boasts a rather unusual and eccentric space for hire, called the Costume Display Gallery. Large enough for 100 to 400 people, it celebrates the evolution of legal costumes throughout history, and is a fascinating insight as well as a great talking point.
There is also the Painted Room, which is a red and gold haven of sumptuous velvet and able to hold 70 people, perfect for that all-important business meeting, or an intimate and luxurious wedding reception.
Last but not least, there’s The Bear Garden. This is a simple and classic room with stone arches and an open fire, achieving a real sense of medieval style – and the perfect place for a private banquet for 10 to 80 people.
