Jason Scott About The Bloomsbury Ballroom

Located within Victoria House; The Bloomsbury Ballroom is London’s opulent art-deco 1920’s event space. Situated on Bloomsbury Square only a few minutes walk from the West End or the City with its exquisite neo-classical façade; The Bloomsbury Ballroom is ideally located for corporate events, award ceremonies, gala dinners, film shoots, bar mitzvahs, fashion shows and live music events. With capacities of 880 standing, 300 for a seated dinner, 500 theatre style and also being fully licensed for weddings we offer the versatility very rarely found in historic event spaces.

A wedding at The Bloomsbury Ballroom is a distinctive event; from the moment guests arrive outside the matchless facade of the listed building built in the 1920’s. Ushered through the doorways, guests enter the Crush bar, which creates a buzzing ambience from the word, go and coats are checked in through the original box offices, reinforcing the atmosphere of period charm.
