LSO St Luke’s was one of more than 700 buildings that opened their doors to the public during Open House London on 21st September 2013.
Open House London celebrates all that is best about the capital’s buildings, places and neighbourhoods; giving people the opportunity to get under the skin of London’s architecture.
In LSO St Luke’s 10th anniversary year, visitors were given tours of the 18th century, Grade I listed Hawksmoor church. Although a public event, it provided event organisers the opportunity to find out more about one of London’s most unique and stylish venues.
The project to restore LSO St Luke’s started in 2000, and by 2003 it was re-opened as the home of London Symphony Orchestra’s Discovery Programme. Its location close to Silicone Roundabout has also made it a popular venue for private and corporate events such as award ceremonies, receptions, gala dinners and conferences.
Victoria Steinitz, Sales and Marketing Manager at LSO St Luke’s, commented: “The Open House is great way for people to find out more about LSO St Luke’s history. While the event was predominantly aimed at the general public we’re also encouraging event organisers and planners to come and experience the atmosphere of the venue and see why it makes an ideal venue for events, meetings and conferences.”
