Grade II listed, Art Deco former bank
Banking Hall is now an exclusive use venue from one of London’s most established events teams, Camm & Hooper. Built in the 1930s, Banking Hall existed for many years as the busy headquarters of Lloyd’s Bank. A unique Art Deco landmark in the heart of the City, it overlooks the Bank of England and is one of the most enviable, unusual venues for hire in London. After becoming part of the Camm & Hooper collection, we instructed the renowned Russell Sage studios to refurbish the space, and incorporate the latest events technology whilst maintaining its glorious grandeur. We opened the doors to Banking Hall in 2014, and since then have welcomed corporate dinners, receptions and awards ceremonies, as well as fashion, film and music events and private parties.
