It doesn’t matter whether you are planning a wild and wonderful celebration event or a super straight-laced corporate function; the funky London venues featured here will bring every type of event to life!  One of the most popular searches for people planning their events is for funky venues, with event bookers planning birthday parties, summer  and Christmas parties and other unusual corporate and private functions. Often a funky venue can be the perfect choice for more serious events, so whether you are planning a meeting, conference or exhibition, then consider these unusual event spaces to make your next event stand out! Just keep in mind the goals of your event so that you don’t lose sight of why you are planning the event in the first place. It can be easy to get carried away and shift guests focus onto the venue rather than your message.

Funky Venues In Central London

Another great thing about funky venues in London is that they can be found in some very surprising places! From the tops of skyscrapers, to underground archways, London is packed full of cool, stylish and funky spaces that can be used for events. We are constantly impressed and surprised by the uncanny ability of London venue managers to turn practically any funky space into a fit-for-purpose events venue. From mini-golf courses, to offices, to abandoned railways, to aquariums, to derelict abandoned churches, to any other plot of land with basically anything at all on it – the #eventprofs of London will find a way to make it an awesome funky space that can be used for most any event you can think of! 

Funky Venue Ideas

Funky venues in London are a great way of leaving a lasting impression and giving your guests an experience they may not have had before. From helping our clients plan hundreds of events, we have experienced some astonishing events that have made full use of funky venues. Even if your guests have been to the venue before, perhaps as part of a public event or a day out, returning to the venue for a private event is a very different and often special experience.  There are hundreds of funky London venues to choose from and so we have a few recommendations to help you find the right one!

When you start looking at funky venues and seeing the incredible range of wild and wonderful options available, it is easy to get carried away and lose sight of what is important. Just remember to take a step back and consider whether your shortlisted funky venues will help you achieve what you are setting out to do.

If you choose a funky venue with a strong theme then don’t be afraid to roll with it. Ask suppliers to come up with something in-line with the venue theme and make your event congruent from start to finish. Just make sure ideas go through you first, as there is a thin line between tacky and tasteful!

Although our funky halls are awesome and well worth splashing out on for many event briefs, remember not to skimp on other elements of your event. A super funky venue that everyone loves is only great if catering, production and content of the event are also up to up to scratch!

Some of the more bizarre funky venues can often double up as visitor attractions. if your event takes place in the evening on a day that a venue is open to public then be aware that you will be in for a mad rush to get everything set up. This is usually achievable but be prepared to hire a few extra bodies and potentially compromise with anything that requires time to set up.
