Lime Venue Portfolio, the portfolio of sporting and cultural meetings and events venues, has added three branches of the Imperial War Museum – IWM Duxford, the Churchill War Rooms and HMS Belfast (pictured above) – to its group.
The three venues have signed a five-year contract worth £7.3m with Levy Restaurants UK, the sports, leisure and hospitality sector of Compass Group UK & Ireland. Levy will cater to guests, delegates and visitors while Lime Venue will be responsible fro driving events business.
IWM Duxford in Cambridge featured a 200-seat tiered lecture theatre, seven meeting and events spaces and the AirSpace Conservation Hall. The Churchill War Rooms in Westminster offer four meetings and events spaces, with capacity for up to 400 guests. Finally, HMS Belfast includes rooms, event suites, dining hall and decks, and facilities and views overlooking London and Tower Bridge and the Thames Docklands.
“We’re very excited to work in collaboration with IWM to help establish IWM Duxford, HMS Belfast and Churchill War Rooms as a pre-eminent choice for corporate, association, agency and private conference and event oragnisers,” said Jo Austin, director of sales for Lime Venue Portfolio. “The museums are a valuable addition to our portfolio and we’re looking forward to introducing complete event solutions that encompass innovative and sustainably sourced food to provide high quality and memorable events.”
