With a wealth of experience catering for special events, we were chosen to complement the museum’s ethos of innovation and discovery. We will create tailored menus incorporating the latest trends and food styling for the diverse range of events that can be accommodated in Illuminate.
The Science Museum and Moving Venue collaboration will see event bookers receive a bespoke offering that is fit-for-purpose in the pioneering new space.

Meeting industry demand for a fully dedicated conference and events space, Illuminate will be a first of its kind in the unique venue industry. Exclusive partnerships such as these with White Light, the assigned AV partner, and ourselves, will bring together the venue, catering and AV into streamlined event packages, ensuring a convenient and cost-effective booking process for clients.

Ben Lheureux, Head of Catering & Events at the Science Museum Group, says: “We are excited for Moving Venue to bring a unique catering offering to our clients who book Illuminate for their events. With Illuminate set to create waves in the industry, it was vital that we selected experienced partners, and the flair and creativity of Moving Venue will allow us to push the boundaries when it comes to producing creative, interactive and memorable events.”

Chloe Martin, Sales and Marketing Director at Moving Venue, comments, “Our history catering at the Museum goes back over two decades, which only makes the opportunity to partner the team on Illuminate even more of a landmark win. From the moment we saw the plans, we knew this would become one of London’s hottest event spaces in 2019 and beyond. Combining operational excellence and innovative menus, we can ensure guests are offered a first class experience from start to finish”.

Illuminate is situated on levels four and five of the Science Museum and will be available for both daytime and evening hire for capacities of up to 400 for dinners and conferences and 450 for receptions. One of the unique features of the new space will be a panoramic window on level five offering stunning views of the City and an abundance of natural daylight, a key element in ensuring a productive meeting or conference experience.
