Searcys has been appointed the new caterer at the Royal Institution, a Grade I listed venue in Mayfair, Central London.
Located just off Piccadilly on the historic Albemarle Street, Searcys now runs the event catering and on-site café menus at the Royal Institution.
The Royal Institution has been the home of science and innovation for more than 200 years. The building is a three-floored event venue, with historic Georgian rooms adorned with fine portraits and original structural features, blending with contemporary and well-equipped event spaces.
The Royal Institution has hosted eminent scientists whose discoveries have shaped the modern world, including Humphry Davy's miners' safety lamp, Michael Faraday's work on electromagnetic induction and Kathleen Lonsdale's use of X-ray diffraction to identify the structure of Benzene.
Famous speakers at the venue have included HG Wells, Sir David Attenborough, Helen Sharman and Grayson Perry. Today, the Royal Institution is a registered charity "encouraging everyone to think more deeply about science and its place in our lives".
The building holds small meetings, conferences, parties and receptions and the venue includes an atrium, museum with a mezzanine, a library on the first floor, a 400-seater theatre and the decorative writing room.
