Whitechapel Gallery

On the edge of the Square Mile, neighbouring The City, Canary Wharf and Shoreditch, the Whitechapel Gallery is an iconic venue premiering international art from the modern to the contemporary. The Gallery offers 3,600 square metres of beautiful and versatile spacethat can accommodate many different event needs, housed in a distinctive building with artist-designed features and décor.

The stunning 1901 Arts and Crafts building was expanded in 2009 into the adjacent Whitechapel Library to create a beautiful gallery space open for drinks receptions and seated dinners. Ampersand will combine their creative flair with the gallery’s artistic bohemian spaces to offer you an inspirational place to wine, dine and socialise with your guests. The Whitechapel gallery is ideal for anything from receptions and dinners to product launches, private viewings and conferences. Its beautiful open plan spaces can easily be dressed to suit any event and are a perfect platform for themed events, branding and installations.


Whitechapel Gallery consist of 4 exhibition galleries, 2 studio spaces and the Zilkha Auditorium.

Galleries 1 and 8 offer beautiful open space with subtle features including high arched ceilings, striking interior columns and impressive floor to ceiling glass windows. Each space exudes an elegant atmosphere ideal for hosting intimate gatherings. Gallery 2 is a unique space, previously the central reading room of the former Whitechapel Library. Its original Victorian brickwork and polished concrete floor are the perfect canvas on which to create your special event.

With colorful seating designed by Turner Prize nominee Liam Gillick, the wood paneled Zilkha Auditorium is a work of art in itself. Delegates can meander through Galleries 1 or 2 en route to the Auditorium, giving time to reflect and be inspired before arriving in this calming space.

After their lecture, guests can use Gallery 3 for meetings or intimate dinners. This light room, equipped with a pull-down projection screen, is the ideal space for meetings and away days. Limited edition prints line the walls, which are dressed in wallpaper designed by leading British artist Sarah Lucas.
