The Prince's Foundation plays host to National Open Art Competition


Dec 13, 2012 | Feature

The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community’s impressive Gallery space recently played host to the annual National Open Art Competition attracting promising artists from around the country. With a generous exhibition space the Gallery proved to be the perfect venue to showcase a variety of artwork. Located in the heart of London’s Shoreditch area meant plenty of passers-by dropped in to see the work as it was exhibited over a 2 week period.

The converted Victorian furniture factory in the heart of London’s arts scene also proved an ideal place to host the competition’s award ceremony, combining the Gallery’s atmosphere with the convenience of on site catering services.

“The evening was a great success and we are all really pleased. Thank you all for making the evening run so smoothly.” Amanda Kings, (NOAC) Competition Director.

“A BIG thank you to the team. Our event was a great success and had a good buzz with our eclectic mix of guests,” Towry, the Wealth Adviser and sponsors of The National Open Art Competition (NOAC).

To date, the Prince’s Foundation has offered this unique space for hundreds of events, ranging from exhibitions and award ceremonies to weddings and gala dinners.

The simple, but stylish event space has capacity for 90 seated and 250 standing, providing an ideal space for both smaller and larger gatherings. Combining over a hundred years of heritage with contemporary expectations, the venue offers both the luxury of exposed brickwork and natural wood flooring with the convenience of all the necessary AV equipment and assistance.

Ceiling-mounted projectors, adjustable halogen track lighting and a completely integrated AV system all contribute to versatile set up able to deal with the demands of any event, whether it’s an arts exhibition, presentation or wedding.

With a mere 5 minute walk from Old Street tube station, or 10 minutes from Liverpool Street station, guests and attendees are never far away from a ride home or back to the office.
