A 19th-century townhouse in the City of London has opened as a small and intimate venue for events and meetings.

The listed building, 12 Austin Friars, was formally the Furniture Makers’ Hall and is still the home of the craft guild, the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers.

The venue is now managed by food and events specialists Kudos who were named as the UK’s best Food and Beverage Provider by Meetings & Incentive Travel magazine in both 2010 and 2011. The Kudos team are developing one-to-one sessions with prospective event bookers to help buyers understand the venue.

Jon Pryce, managing director of Kudos, says: ‘This prestigious venue is not an average type of event or meeting space so we wanted to demonstrate its unique qualities, and clearly show its offering as a personal, up-market and modern location.’

The house can cater for small and private events and meetings from two to 70 guests. Kudos is offering a 25% discount on room hire for every first booking.

Austin Friars is a quiet cul-de-sac behind Throgmorton Street in the heart of the City of London. Thomas Cromwell, the hero of Hilary Mantel’s award winning novel Wolf Hall lived here in Tudor times.
