VSL's Top New Venues & Festive Favourites
Monday 18 July 2022
After a busy week at this year's London Christmas Party Show at Haberdasher's Hall, presenting our 'Top New Venues & Festive Favourites' seminar over two days, we wanted to share a summary of these exciting prospects for the year to come...
The London Christmas Party Show is a great opportunity every year for us to reconnect with some of our top venues and creative event suppliers, along with sampling some delicious food, drinks and festive tunes! Hosted by our sister company, Story Events, it's a staple in our calendar every year.
Venue Search London have the privilege of hosting our popular Top New Venues seminar across the two-day event each year, and this year we added some festive London Christmas party venue favourites to make it even more topical.
If you missed out, or just need a reminder, we've summarised our top picks below!
Located at Monument in the City of London, this venue opened in May this year. A fabulous new addition to the ETM Group, The Wagtail is a glorious bar, dining and event space, accommodating up to 120 for a standing reception or 60 for a seated dinner.
Coming to you from the same group that brought us The Botanist and The Aviary, The Wagtail is set to become one of the City's most popular spaces, with two glorious terraces for smaller parties, or one large wrap around terrace for bigger numbers. Their unique dome offers a private dining space for those looking for a more intimate and unique dining experience within the capital.
Located in the heart of the West End, Pitch have launched their brand new flagship venue in April 2022, joining the original in Bishopsgate, with another new opening due for Canary Wharf later this year.

Guests will be treated to a four course seated meal with plenty of drinks and more than enough entertainment to keep you singing and dancing into the wee hours of the morning. A truly unique party venue for your next Christmas party!
