Beautiful Rooms - The London 2012 Olympic Cauldron Gallery, Museum of London

Tuesday, September 14, 2021 - 08:15

The London 2012 Olympic Cauldron Gallery at the Museum of London captures a significant moment in time for London and is an incredibly popular space with guests who relish the opportunity of getting up close to Thomas Heatherwick’s copper cauldron sculpture.

The gallery tells the story of the concept, design and construction of the sculpture from the initial stages to the climatic opening and closing ceremonies in the Olympic Stadium in east London. The gallery also features a wall of the original moulds used to create each of the cauldron’s individual petals, which represented the different nations competing in the games. Footage from the opening ceremony and the moment the cauldron is unveiled is also played to help enhance the experience.

The gallery offers clients an inspiring backdrop for smaller dinners of up to 30 guests on round tables or standing receptions for up to 70.

It is also ideal for breakfast events and is a guaranteed talking point for guests as they reminisce about their experiences and memories of London 2012! For the added wow factor, the lights in the petals themselves can be branded for the event. For more information or to book, contact the venue team on venuehire@museumoflondon.org.uk
