Caterer Peyton and Byrne (part of Sodexo) has been awarded a four-year contract worth £6 million to provide events, hospitality and retail services at the RAF Museum in London.
Peyton and Byrne will operate the three retail areas within the museum at Colindale, with Peyton Events running the seven dedicated conference and events spaces.
The museum has a wide variety of daytime event spaces available, including a 200-capacity tiered lecture theatre, a spacious exhibition room and smaller meeting rooms for board meetings and breakout spaces.
The RAF Museum also plays host to evening events, with spacious hangars available to hire for dinners, receptions and parties.
Guests can enjoy modern British menus beside historic and modern aircraft, including the Spitfire, Harrier Jump Jet, Eurofighter Typhoon, and a Hurricane that flew in the Battle of Britain. Smaller hangars are available for more intimate dinners.
Event planners will have the opportunity to incorporate tours of the museum, the flight simulators or Dambusters Virtual Reality Experience into their meeting or event.
Barry Smith, director of visitor and commercial development at the museum, said: "There is such a wide range of options for people wanting to host events, awaydays or meetings here, made even easier by the convenient transport links and extensive free parking for events, that I am sure our partnership will be a huge success."
Charlotte Evans, site general manager for Sodexo, said: "We look forward to welcoming delegates and guests to the RAF Museum and are excited by the opportunities ahead of us. The museum has a whole range of conference and events spaces and is now the largest of our London venues run by Peyton Events. The venue offers a truly unique experience and we are looking forward to bringing these to life here."
