New dimensions at The Mermaid

The Mermaid, one of London’s most evocative venues, continues to expand its facilities. The latest element of its investment in the building and its infra-structure has created significant new exhibition space. It can accommodate up to 40 exhibitors with a shell scheme, or it can be broken down into a meeting space with up to 4 rooms that range from 12 – 150: this can be used be used in conjunction with the venue’s Auditorium or as stand-alone space.

The Mermaid has also created a bigger, brighter foyer which will enable clients to have better branding opportunities, as well as providing additional space for catering. There’s also a new high-speed WiFi with better connectivity - the system is fully scalable and can be enhanced, as the client demands, up to 100Mb of internet bandwidth.

Innovative ‘living wall’

During his recent press conference about cleaner air initiatives for London, Mayor Boris Johnston announced that an innovative green wall is to be installed on The Mermaid, subject to planning permission, on one of London’s busiest and most heavily polluted roads. Not only are green walls visually stunning, they also trap pollutants, removing them from the air. 'Our directors have worked incredibly hard with TFL to come to this solution and whilst is still subject to planning permission I am delighted at the outcome, and this will only enhance our green credentials,' says the Mermaid’s Head of Public Relations Carol Anderson.

Versatile and spectacular

The Mermaid (formerly Mermaid Theatre) is an independently owned venue nestled on the north bank of the Thames adjacent to Blackfriars Station, with spectacular river views of the Tate Modern, Globe Theatre, Millennium Bridge and The Shard.

The main auditorium is tiered, column free and seats up to 600. It is suitable for AGMs, conferences, staff presentations and with its large stage ideal for product launches, fashion shows and concerts. The venue can be booked exclusively and branded if required. There is a full range of audio visual equipment and an in house technical team to assist you at all times.

There are several smaller meeting rooms that can accommodate from 10 -240, all which have natural daylight, air conditioning and WiFi access. The two function rooms that overlook the river are suitable for dinners, receptions and Christmas parties and can accommodate up to 400 for a buffet spread over the two rooms and 150 for a seated dinner.
