The Dynamic Battersea Evolution In The Spotlight

Thu 21 Jun 2018

Nestled in the heart of Battersea Park in the city of London is a venue like no other. Open, inviting and truly capable of hosting any event, Battersea Evolution is widely known as ‘London’s most versatile and dynamic venue’ and there are some very good reasons why.

We’re going to be giving you the grand tour of Battersea Evolution today and will be telling you everything you could possibly need to know about this simply spectacular London venue.

The Details

Battersea Evolution is owned and managed between ourselves here at Smart Group and specialists in temporary event structures, GL Events Owen Brown. Smart Hospitality provide delicious catering, Hawthorn manage production and EtherLive ensure great connectivity at the venue.

Located in the centre of Battersea Park, this 5,500m² venue is designed to be the city’s most versatile and flexible venue that is easily adaptable to any occasion and any capacity. The venue itself sits amongst 14,000m² of land that is all exclusive to the venue and can be used as part of events hosted on site. The internal space of the venue has room for 4,000 in a conference setting and 2,000 in a dining environment but the flexibility means we can cater for all party sizes.

The layout of Battersea Evolution can be customised to suit the event in hand but as a standard, the venue is made up of three key areas: The Atrium, the Mezzanine and the Main Space. Behind the scenes of these three versatile areas is also a 600m² kitchen and catering area where our Smart Hospitality team hide away creating unforgettable dishes to be served to guests in the main venue.

The exterior of Battersea Evolution has an industrial feel to it which isn’t just eye-catching and characteristic but also emphasises the practicality of this venue and contributes towards the efficient 24 hour build time this venue has, so when it’s time to get this space ready for a party, we can get started in no time.

When it comes to heading a little further afield from the venue, you’ll find great access to public transport and many options for accommodation, ideal for making your visit to Battersea Evolution even easier.

The main selling point of Battersea Evolution is its versatility and that’s something we’re very proud of. There truly is no event that this venue can’t cater for and we have past experience of hosting all kinds of different occasions in this open and flexible space.

Our annual themed Christmas parties are some of the biggest events we host at Battersea Evolution. The 2018 theme is ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ and this theme will be portrayed through shared and exclusive Christmas parties from November through to January.

We don’t just know how to throw festive parties though; Battersea Evolution is also a popular choice for corporate celebrations of all kinds including dinners, charity events and award ceremonies. Alongside being the perfect space for lavish wining and dining experiences, Battersea Evolution is also perfectly suited for events such as exhibitions, conferences and product launches, so no matter what the occasion, we can host it here!
