The National Gallery has added to its collection of events spaces, with the launch of The Trafalgar Room, formerly known as the National Dining Room. As one of the venue’s long-standing approved suppliers for events, technical solutions specialist White Light (WL) will provide the AV services, as part of an exclusive partnership.
The first-floor space can host capacities ranging from 20 – 300 pax and offers a stunning panorama of Trafalgar Square and its historical monuments. With an abundance of natural daylight, the versatility of this blank canvas setting offers planners numerous options for hosting a range of different event formats.
As dedicated production partner for The Trafalgar Room, WL has designed a flexible technical production solution, drawing on over 20 years’ expertise as an accredited supplier to London’s most iconic venues. With a bespoke lighting, audio and video system tailored specifically to enhance the space, the basic package includes everything a conference and event organiser needs to maximise their event’s potential. The AV solution has also been designed to facilitate the seamless delivery of both hybrid and live events. All bookings are fully supported by WL’s onsite team of technical venue experts.
In line with the National Gallery’s official Visit England certification as a COVID-secure venue, all measures required have been taken to enable The Trafalgar Room to facilitate a safe return for live meetings and events in the wake of the pandemic. To adapt to the new normal events world where digital delivery will play a crucial role, WL is fully equipped to support the full spectrum of clients’ digital requirements. This will enable planners to utilise the true potential of the new events space, the wider venue, and the widest audience.
WL’s Senior Project Manager Jason Larcombe offered: “We are delighted to be adding The Trafalgar Room to our prestigious portfolio of in-house managed venues, which includes Central Hall Westminster and Illuminate at the Science Museum. Our extensive work in heritage venues for many years, combined with our vast inventory of the latest technology, make us uniquely placed to support the National Gallery in securing maximum ROI for their latest events space. We are excited to start delivering projects in the new venue, alongside our continued work as an approved supplier across the Gallery’s full and diverse range of event spaces.”
The National Gallery’s Head of Hospitality & Events, Clare Arouche added: “The National Gallery is very excited to be working alongside White Light to launch this new event space and enhance our AV/Production offer for meetings and events. This blank canvas provides a light, airy and creative space for meetings and events set within The National Gallery, one of the most visited and best loved art galleries in the world offering event guests the opportunity to immerse themselves within this cultural institution.”
