Battersea Evolution to host Team GB's fundraising party
Battersea Evolution, the versatile event space in London's Battersea Park, will host Team GB's annual fundraising party on 30 November.
The 5,650 sq m venue, which has a capacity for up to 4,000 guests in conference and 2,000 for dinner, has been rebuilt and rebranded following the summer months.
The British Olympic Association is planning to invite all 366 athletes who made up Team GB in Brazil.
Great Britain finished the Rio 2016 Olympic Games with a record 67 medals, surpassing the record-breaking achievement of 65 medals at London's 2012 Games. The team finished second overall behind the US.
Battersea Evolution will also host a number of events in the coming months including product launches, awards dinners, film premieres and themed Christmas parties.
Stephen Lawrence, managing director of Battersea Evolution and Seasonal Venues, said: "Battersea Evolution is an outstanding and unique venue with incredible capabilities. The variety of high profile events we host is testament to the venue's ability to deliver world class events for clients at a competitive rate."
In-house catering is managed by event caterer Smart Hospitality and the venue has access to Smart Group's creative director, Michelin-starred chef Angela Hartnett, for support with menu design and implementation.
Around 320 guests attended a relaunch dinner at Battersea Evolution last night (19 September).
Established in 2001, Battersea Evolution, which is part of Smart Group, is open from September to June.
