Description

‘Laban hits you right between the eyes…It’s very seductive. The immediate response was to go, wow.’ The Independent

Laban is the world’s largest and best equipped centre for contemporary dance, offering specialist training to up-and-coming dance artists. The fantastic new building was designed by acclaimed architects Herzog & de Meuron, of Tate Modern fame, and won the prestigious Stirling Prize for Architecture in 2003.

In response to popular demand Laban has opened up their doors so that their celebrated building can be used as a venue for inspirational events. Facilities inside the building include a state-of-the-art 300-seat theatre, a 100 seat lecture theatre, 12 light, bright and versatile studio spaces and a funky foyer & drinks reception area for up to 400. Outside, the exclusive 200 seat amphitheatre and landscaped gardens, totalling 600 square metres, offer a stunning setting for outdoor functions and weddings.

The building explodes with colour, both inside and out. By day, it’s semitranslucent outer skin allows light to pass through it, flooding the inner spaces with white and coloured natural light. By night, the building becomes a coloured beacon, with light and colour spilling out, illuminating the surrounding area.

From award ceremonies to away-days, product launches to press conferences and champagne receptions to stylish summer barbeques, Laban, the ‘coolest piece of architecture in the capital’ (Evening Standard), is the ultra modern venue that can guarantee to deliver a sleek event in an inspired setting for you and your special guests.

Marketing Week

So, yet another week in which ITV has been making, rather than merely
reporting on, the news. While the upheaval must be very unsettling for
all those working there, they can at least derive one consolation. If
three such big media beasts as Sir Richar…
