Planning your next event and looking for an outstanding venue to make the best impression? Then find out why City Centre the HAC is the ideal venue for outdoor events in the City


Three reasons to choose City Centre the HAC for your next summer event in the City


1 – A luxury private outdoor space in the Square Mile

The garden is overlooked by the 18th-century Armoury House, the headquarters of the Honourable Artillery Company, one of the world’s oldest military organisations.

With space for 400-1000 guests for seated dinners or 400 to 2,400 for standing receptions/barbecues, City Centre the HAC is one of our largest events venues in London. The picturesque lawn is the perfect oasis from the hustle and bustle of the City, and you can always head inside to the purpose-built glazed reception space should the weather make a turn for the worse.


2 – You’re never too old for the funfair

Probably the biggest highlight of City Centre the HAC is its wonderful funfair, which is equipped with adrenaline-infusing dodgems, a carousel, games stalls, and a magnificent big wheel. Available for exclusive use, it’s a fantastic addition to a summer party, conference or any other special occasion.



3 – Benefit from the best suppliers around

Like all our London events venues, City Centre the HAC has some of the top suppliers in London, from world-class caterers like Create to corporate fun day and team-building brands like Eventwise.

Because we’re one of over 16 brands of the Concerto Group, we enjoy significant economies of scale, too. That means we have the negotiating power to give you the best talent for the lowest price, thanks to our longstanding relationships with our suppliers.

So, if you’re looking for a completely different way to celebrate your next big event in London, give your guests a show-stopping experience at the City’s only venue with its own funfair.

Planning an event and looking for the perfect venue with a smaller capacity? Then here’s why you should choose the View at City Central at the HAC.


Five reasons to choose The View for smaller-capacity

summer events:


1. Enjoy exclusive access to the City Central’s funfair and other perks

By choosing The View as your London events venue, you’ll have privileged use of the City Central’s spectacular funfair, which has an amazing carousel, big wheel, dodgems, and stalls with prizes to be won.

You can hire a DJ to create a tailored playlist, or have a photo booth with special props set up so your guests can let their hair down and have a laugh.


2. Near the heart of the City

The View is just a few minutes’ walk from Moorgate (rail), Liverpool Street (rail, Central, Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan), Barbican (Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan) and Old Street (rail, Northern) stations, and is within easy reach of many of the City’s financial and legal firms.


3. World-class sound, lighting and technology

Like every London events venue managed by Ultimate Experience, The View benefits from state-of-the-art facilities so you can make the best impact. Plus, we have economies of scale, which means we have the bargaining power to get significant discounts – which can be passed on to you.


4. Stunning cuisine

Look forward to delicious food from our renowned catering partner, Create, which was proud to be voted Caterer of the Year at the 2017 Event Awards. For almost 35 years, it has served clients in dozens of luxury venues in London and across the UK, from marquees to museums.


5. Great for indoor and outdoor events

The View can accommodate between 150 and 500 guests at its private garden and indoor space, so you can still enjoy all the advantages of a prestigious venue for a smaller drinks reception, seated dinner or another function.


Please note that The View, like the rest of the City Central at the HAC, is open for summer events from early June to early July, and can also be hired for sensational Christmas parties in November and December.
