The Whitechapel Gallery is internationally renowned for its exhibitions of modern and contemporary art and its pioneering education and public events programmes. The foundation of the Gallery was to bring great art to the people of east London and so projects with the local community and schools are integral to the institution. The Gallery is a registered charity and all venue hire income directly supports our Education and Community programmes.
This Grade II listed building boasts 3,600 square metres of beautiful, versatile spaces that provides a venue full of character in central London. Whether you are after a private tour of an exhibition, our Creative Clore Studio or Study Studio for a meeting or The Zilkha Auditorium for a talk, Whitechapel is suitable for hosting events of all styles.
Whatever you need, the experienced and imaginative Venue Hire team will be there to assist you in creating your perfect event.
