Jenny Smith joins Somerset House from the Saatchi Gallery
Somerset House has welcomed Jenny Smith as its new Head of Corporate Events. Jenny Smith joins the arts and cultural venue from the Saatchi Gallery, where she was Head of Venues, and will be responsible for leading Somerset House’s venue hire and bespoke events business.
Attracting over three million visitors each year, Somerset House is one of London’s most inspiring destinations, combining its heritage with a commitment to contemporary culture. Somerset House’s Corporate Events team works with a wide range of clients to stage impeccably planned events in spaces large and small across the site, from celebrations in the courtyard and press days to hosting the inaugural London Design Biennale across the entire site.
Jenny Smith says: “I am honoured to be joining the Somerset House team and taking up this position at one of London’s most spectacular venues. We have a busy autumn ahead with space available for private hire in our East Wing Galleries, our ever popular Skate and the newly announced Hair By Sam McKnight celebrating the master hair stylist’s remarkable 40 year career. I am looking forward to using my own experience to build on the success of the department.”
Diana Spiegelberg, Deputy Director at Somerset House, adds: “We are delighted to welcome Jenny to our team. Jenny’s wealth of experience and knowledge of the industry is the perfect fit to help develop Somerset House’s event offering.”
