At the heart of the venue is the Auditorium with tiered seating for 600 people, excellent sight lines to the stage and unrivalled acoustics.

There are eight event spaces, totalling 2,395sqft. Earlier in 2017 the Newgate Suite received a £250,000 refurbishment and now includes multiple interconnecting whiteboard walls for creative use, and can be divided into four meeting and breakout spaces.

The recent £750,000 refurbishment in September 2017 of the Upper River Room sees the ceiling height raised and existing supports redesigned to create a contemporary open plan space, further enhancing sightlines of Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe and The Shard.

Each photo reveals a fascinating galaxy of pattern and colour which is completely unique to each person. The images can also be branded which generates a huge amount of social media engagement as visitors share their eye photos with friends and colleagues online.

Additional services they offer include bespoke artworking – bringing all the iris portraits together from an event into a composite artwork like a company’s logo; data capture, and gamification.
