The National Theatre opens its new rooftop events space The Deck
The National Theatre in London celebrated the launch of its new rooftop events space, The Deck, on 7 September.
The venue welcomed event professionals, stakeholders, key clients and press with ‘The Deck Lager’ and sparkling wine from Nyetimber, while they enjoyed stunning views across the London skyline.
The sleek new riverside venue was designed by RIBA award-winning architects AHAworth Tompkins, who also completed NT Future, a hugely successful £80 million redevelopment of the National Theatre in May 2015.
The Deck’s new structure includes sliding glass screens which allow the installation to open onto the external terrace, creating a free-flowing space inside and out, while showcasing panoramic views of the London skyline and the venues spectacular location on the Southbank.
Ali Blows, Head of Commercial Events & Business Development at the National Theatre, says: “We have been looking forward to our big launch event all summer and the team is so pleased that the evening was a great success. It was lovely to see guests enjoying all aspects of The Deck and to see the event space in all its glory.
“We have been open for bookings for a few months and have already received numerous Christmas party, wedding and corporate event enquiries; the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and we cannot wait to show off the rooftop venue to new audiences and look forward to hosting a wide range of events at The Deck.”
