Sometimes, something new comes along..

We are delighted to reveal a first-look video giving an exclusive preview into our brand new events space, Illuminate, which is due to open in February 2019. Clients looking to secure the first bookings in the new space will be able to do so from 27 June at The Meetings Show, where we will be alongside our exclusive caterer for Illuminate: Moving Venue.

With a wealth of experience catering for special events, Moving Venue have been chosen to complement the museum’s ethos of innovation and discovery. They will create tailored menus incorporating the latest trends and food styling for the diverse range of events that can be accommodated in Illuminate. Our collaboration will ensure event bookers receive a bespoke offering that is fit-for-purpose in the pioneering new space.

Meeting industry demand for a fully dedicated conference and events space, Illuminate will be one of the first of its kind in the unique venue. Exclusive partnerships such as these with Moving Venue and White Light – Illuminates assigned AV partner – will bring the venue, catering and AV elements together in streamlined event packages, ensuring a convenient and cost-effective booking process for clients.

Ben Lheureux, Head of Catering & Events here at the Science Museum Group, says: “We are excited for Moving Venue to bring a unique catering offering to our clients who book Illuminate for their events. With Illuminate set to create waves in the industry, it was vital that we selected experienced partners, and the flair and creativity of Moving Venue will allow us to push the boundaries when it comes to producing creative, interactive and memorable events.”

Chloe Martin, Sales and Marketing Director at, comments: “Our history catering at the Museum goes back over two decades, which only makes the opportunity to partner with the team on Illuminate even more of a landmark win. From the moment we saw the plans, we knew this would become one of London’s hottest event spaces in 2019 and beyond. Combining operational excellence and innovative menus, we can ensure guests are offered a first class experience from start to finish.”
