CASE STUDY: 15Hatfields - Conference & Events Venue
15Hatfields tells an infectious story of an unrelenting commitment to sustainable causes. Since we opened our doors in 2008, our pioneering spirit for a more sustainable future has been at the core of our award-winning events venue on London’s Southbank.
Accommodating all manner of events for up to 530 guests (dependant on social distancing restrictions), our meeting rooms and conference facilities capture the innovation and eco-driven passion of our general manager Warren Campbell and the events team. Upon entering the building, every architectural element has a story to tell, from an accessible reception desk made from recycled detergent bottles, to window-seat cushion covers crafted out of recycled car seatbelts in our iconic colour scheme.
