After completing a £600,000 refurbishment of its kitchen in December 2012, Senate House, the art deco centrepiece of the University of London, is launching a dedicated day delegate rate (DDR).

The “Spring Term DDR”, starting at £50 + VAT per person, has been created to showcase the venue’s increased standard of service, menu choice and quality of food, following the recent completion of its five-month refurbishment. The DDR will be available to event organisers until 22nd March 2013, and will include room hire, three servings of tea and coffee and a freshly prepared working lunch, provided by the experienced in-house caterers.

The Bloomsbury venue, renowned for being London’s first sky scraper, continues its strive to reduce its carbon footprint, working closely with renewable energy suppliers, and incorporating locally sourced, fresh ingredients in its bespoke menus.

Boasting 29 conference and events spaces and first class facilities, the Grade II* listed building offers a diverse range of spaces, all with advanced audiovisual equipment, from the Court Room, which caters for intimate meetings of up to 30 delegates, to the highly adaptable Beveridge Hall, accommodating 450 guests theatre style.

Charlie Vernon, business development manager at Senate House, said: “Following the renovation of our kitchen, we decided to launch the “Spring Term DDR” to showcase the improvement of our facilities and catering offering. We are now able to offer event organisers even more return on their revenue when they book an event with us. We hope that our “Spring Term DDR” will encourage more new business to Senate House during the spring.”
