Make your office Christmas party, family gathering or dinner with friends an occasion to remember.

The Foundling Museum provides the perfect backdrop for a unique festive party. Nestled in the heart of central London, our venue is ideal for gatherings of all sizes.

Enjoy a private dinner or drinks party for family and friends in the intimate Court Room, with its stunning Rococo interior and historic art collection. The room can accommodate up to 40 guests for dinner or up to 80 for a drinks reception.

Looking to host a corporate Christmas event? Impress your colleagues and clients with a drinks reception in our elegant Picture Gallery for up to 150 people. Your guests can explore the Museum at their leisure with a glass of champagne and canapés. Enhance your event with a tour by one of our expert guides – learn about the Christmas season’s favourite oratorio Messiah by composer George Fredric Handel, or the Foundling Hospital’s connections to Charles Dickens, author of the holiday classic A Christmas Carol.

Enjoy dedicated support throughout your event from our venue hire team. The Museum is fully accessible and is easy to get to by public transport. We work with a select group of caterers, florists and AV suppliers who can tailor their offerings to match your preferences.

When we’re closed to the public, our historic rooms can be exclusively yours to enjoy your festive celebration.

As a registered charity all income from venue hire supports the Foundling Museum’s work with marginalised and vulnerable children.
