Prospero House comes to the Borough

London SE1 website team

SE1's latest business events venue has been launched this month. Prospero House in Borough High Street is Etc Venues' sixth centre.

Designed with a keen eye to modern urban chic to compliment the recent rejuvenation of Bankside, Prospero House – close to Borough tube station and adjacent to Borough Post Office – offers clients and delegates alike the ideal space to host a complementary mix of daytime and/or evening, corporate and private events.

Benefits of the venue include access to an in-house after hours bar which doubles up as a daytime reception area, a visible chef/kitchen area offering a "gastro"-look and feel to the dining area – for theatre-style events up to a maximum of 275 people.

Meeting rooms at Prospero House feature full conference facilities such as lecterns, plasma screens and data projectors. Video conferencing and internet access is also available.

300 people packed into Prospero House on 11 May for the launch night, held in collaboration with Better Bankside and with the involvement of Borough Market traders Utobeer and Brindisa.

"The dynamism of each venue, reinforced with support from organisations such as Alone in London, Better Bankside, Borough Market and Clarins, our commitment to recycling and working with the community, as well as our 120-strong staff, all reflect a confidence from working at the cutting edge of the events industry," commented MD Sally Wilton.

The "fresh" and "restaurant-like" interior was designed by Pierce Design International.

Prospero House is close to Etc Venues' orginal centre in Avonmouth Street off Newington Causeway which opened in 1992.
