The process is very competitive and we only add suppliers who we believe will elevate client events and fully understand the dynamics of working in a Grade I listed building.”

In response to an increasing demand for marquee events in the Middle Temple gardens, the venue has selected a brand new list of approved suppliers, including All Span Marquees, Ascot Marquees, Fews Marquees and Key Structures.
A list of catering suppliers was finalised in summer 2013 with companies including FoodShow, The Admirable Crichton, Ampersand and Bubble Food. Speciality caterers for Kosher food include Philip Small, Jason Millan and Tony Page Ltd. Asian caterers include Gaylords, The Clay Oven, Greenleaf Catering and Sanjay Foods.
Middle Temple, built between 1562 and 1573, houses some of the most imposing event space in London. Located a few minutes from Fleet Street, The Strand and Embankment and overlooking the river Thames, the secluded environment of Middle Temple Hall lends itself to corporate and private events. The history and heritage of Middle Temple spans many centuries and the site has remained virtually unaltered to the present day.
