Hire the HAC as a historic venue ideal for an array of events including gala dinners, networking receptions, award ceremonies and conferences. The HAC was opened by HM The Queen in 2007 and have since become one of the most popular and versatile venues in the City of London. The HAC is just a short walk from Liverpool Street, Moorgate and Old Street, making it an ideal location for your guests.

The largest space at the HAC, the Prince Consort Rooms, has the capacity to host up to 700 guests for a standing reception and 350 for a seated dinner dance. This contemporary, modern and stylish space has the event organiser in mind, as they feature an in-built atmospheric lighting scheme which includes pin-spot lighting and LED colour change uplighters as well as complimentary secure, wireless broadband internet access.

The flexible, blank canvas nature of the rooms mean that they are perfectly suited to a wide range of events from awards dinners and conferences to summer and Christmas parties. The Prince Consort Rooms also have their own private courtyard garden area which can be used during conference refreshment breaks, for pre-dinner drinks receptions and for summer barbecue parties.

This elegant, oak panelled room is steeped in the rich history of the venue. Huge picture windows allow fantastic views of the Artillery Garden and out to the City of London beyond. It is a hugely atmospheric setting for all types of event, whether it be an evening dinner and dance, a co
