The Science Museum, located in South Kensington has revealed an increase in intimate dinner bookings in two of its new event spaces.

Wonderlab: The Statoil Gallery and Mathematics: The Winton Gallery have both seen a rise in demand.

The museum last year received around 5-6 enquires per month for small dinners, which this year has increased to 10-15 on average. The team attributes this increase to the launch of both of the new spaces within the last seven months.

“The events industry is constantly evolving and recently we’ve seen a significant increase in clients demanding truly unique, exclusive and immersive experiences that will live long in the minds of attendees,” said Jodie Guilford, event sales manager at the Science Museum.

“Whether a private dinner or a larger drinks reception, for example, clients are consistent in their desire to offer guests something different to what you can get from a private dining room in a hotel.”

The Science Museum has recently hosted a VIP board dinner for Tate & Lyle in the Maths Gallery.

“Our new spaces, particularly Wonderlab and the Maths Gallery, are the perfect solution to meet this demand. It is fantastic to see not only an increase in intimate dinners, but to have secured an impressive pipeline of upcoming events for both spaces.”
