Painted Hall re-opens in Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London after a two-year conservation project. Partly funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the project restored the venue and its Undercroft.
With astonishing baroque architecture, wide vistas and grand interiors, The Painted Hall, or the ‘Sistine Chapel of the UK’ re-opened to the public on March, 23, 2019. This UNESCO World Heritage Site spread over 4,000 sqm can be hired in the evening for a variety of events, including corporate dinners and receptions, gala dinners, launch parties and fashion shows, special occasions, celebrations and weddings. The spectacular venue offers an impressive space for a variety of occasions.
The new venue is the result of a partnership with the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich and CH&CO, an event catering and management company.
Andrew Bapniah, operations director for CH&CO, said: “We’re excited to reintroduce the Painted Hall to our portfolio of unique event spaces at the Old Royal Naval College.
Guests can enjoy bespoke and creative food – from canapés to banquets. The hand-painted canopy of the Painted Hall is the masterwork of Sir James Thornhill.
The CH&CO Events team looks forward to creating memorable events for clients in this stunning and very special historic location.
