It is essential that each guest feels a million dollars if your charity fundraiser is going to be a success. At Winchester House, we understand the importance of giving every attendee that extra special treatment that helps you to build relationships and encourage guests to support your cause. And, surrounded by half an acre of stunning ground, this quintessentially British building is the perfect setting to give guests a taste of luxury.
The House was built as an illustrious private members club in 1829. Since then it has been home to exclusive parties and some of the best charity events London has ever seen. Aside from being pleasantly situated by the Thames river bank, it is also easy to access from all corners of the country. Friends of your charity can enjoy stunning views of the London skyline as they traverse from Putney Bridge station from the bridge itself. Or, in just a few minutes’ walk they can arrive from Putney main line station.
Guests will know they’re in for a treat when they set their eyes on the spacious gardens surrounding this historic building. Greet them with a champagne reception in the gardens, before unveiling the banqueting rooms indoors. The choice from the great hall to the cosy library space means there’s a space suitable for every occasion. The grand ballroom hosts up to 150 people for a standing reception or 100 for a sit down meal.
And while we’re on the topic of meals, let us tantalise your taste buds with some of the exquisite menus our catering team can provide. Winchester House partners with Create Food – a top of the class catering team. They work closely with clients to truly understand their tastes and create a bespoke menu designed for you and your guests, whether it’s a themed buffet or an eight-course taster menu. Create also has a team of mixologists and wine experts on hand to complement your menu choices and ensure your guests can let their hair down. All you have to do is contact us if you would like to be treated to menu and wine tastings, so you can experience the range of options available.
No venue would be complete without events specialist available to ensure your soiree runs smoothly. Winchester House’s events team are the proud organisers of some of the most successful charity events London has hosted. They can help you to source a vast array of entertainment options, from treasure hunts to auctioneers and magicians. Our dedicated teams, not only know how to make things run smoothly, they also work round the clock to ensure that you enjoy the event as much as your guests do too.
The entire building was recently refurbished to ensure it was suitable for all kinds of events. The building has all the facilities needed to host presentations, auctions and DJs, while retaining its quintessentially British style. The interior has been designed with a neutral colour pallet, so you can add your personal touch to any of the spaces – making it the perfect blank canvas for any event, whether it’s a costume ball or a corporate presentation. The sublime Winchester House, with its army of professionals, is on hand to ensure your charity event is an unforgettable occasion – all you have to do is pick up the phone.
If you choose to host your next event at Winchester House, we’re confident that we can prove just how exciting a blank canvas can be. Rather than a whitewashed room, next time you read ‘black canvas venue’ you’ll think of Great Gatsby themed balls, exotic wine tastings and themed all-night parties. Give us a call to start making it happen.
