LSO St Luke’s and Moving Venue have confirmed a joint venture for 2015’s festive season following a positive first year.
2014 saw the businesses working together to create a ‘Classic Christmas’, which married the commanding Grade I listed architecture of LSO St Luke’s with Moving Venue’s innovative catering. This marked a change in direction of the venue’s Christmas offering and, for the first time since 2003, enabled clients to book directly with the experienced in-house team.
LSO St Luke’s is home to the London Symphony Orchestra’s education and community programme, and combines capacious contemporary interiors with beautiful 18th century architecture. Capable of entertaining up to 450 guests, Christmas events will be elegantly styled, drawing on the venue’s architectural influences, while flavoursome, regional and seasonal dishes will be offered. Prices start from £82 + VAT per person for receptions and £95 + VAT per person for dinners, which includes venue hire, seasonal styling and stylish food and drink.
LSO St Luke’s Sales and Marketing Manager, Victoria Steinitz, commented, “We are delighted to cement our relationship with Moving Venue by confirming a second Christmas season with their team in residence at LSO St Luke’s; this gives us an opportunity to build on last year’s success and develop a high-quality product, responding to our valued clients’ feedback.”
Richard Beggs, Moving Venue’s Managing Director, said, “After a successful first year, we are very pleased to be working with this stunning venue once again. It is a very exciting prospect and will give us the opportunity to hone our offering and create something really special for our guests this Christmas.”
Profits from this period will enable the LSO to continue its vital outreach work in the local communities around this unique London venue.
