The National Theatre stages over 20 shows every year. Its modern and distinctive event spaces include foyers, restaurants, private rooms and outdoor terraces. Whatever the event, from product launches and small business meetings to lavish receptions or private dinners, the NT’s in-house events and technical specialists can manage it for you.
The Buffini Chao Deck is a stunning events venue situated on the roof of the iconic National Theatre. Offering breath-taking panoramic views across London, The Buffini Chao Deck combines a riverside outdoor terrace with a large flexible event space. The building is wrapped in glazed panels which can be retracted on warmer days, so the uninterrupted view is preserved no matter the weather.
The Buffini Chao Deck is ideal for a stylish dinner and dance for up to 100 guests, or standing receptions for up to 200 and barbecues for 180. State-of-the-art lighting and AV has been designed and installed by the National Theatre’s Sound and Lighting departments, providing an inspiring backdrop for conferences, away-days, and product launches. In addition, The Buffini Chao Deck is licensed for weddings, with London’s skyline and the Thames riverscape providing the perfect setting to say ‘I do’.
The National Theatre in-house caterer is KERB who are on a mission to create opportunity and joy through great food. KERB offer a huge range of options from London’s top independent food traders to contemporary menus designed by their Executive Chef.
