The Venue:

The Brewery is a stunning, historic venue, centrally located in zone 1, a five-minute walk from the Barbican and less than ten minutes from Liverpool Street, Moorgate and Barbican Underground stations.

The Grade II listed building occupies the site of the former Whitbread brewery in East London. At the height of the industrial Revolution in 1750, Samuel Whitbread, having bought property in the area, transplanted his operations to Chiswell Street from two smaller breweries in Old Street and Brick Lane. Within a few years Whitbread’s brewery had become a vast operation, its sheer size making it an attraction worthy of royal visits. George III, Queen Charlotte, Queen Elizabeth II and Elizabeth the Queen Mother all visited the site.

Brewing on the site continued until 1976, the last tanker pulling out of the South Yard on April 13, bringing to an end a 225-year era.

The decision to convert the Brewery into a conference and banqueting centre was made at a time when the trend was for massive conferences centres to be built in the regional capitals. From creating one of the first private fire brigades to surviving two world wars, the Brewery has continued to evolve and innovate and is now recognised as a centre for excellence in the field of event management.
