New Venue – The Postal Museum

We are very excited and pleased to announce that we have been awarded preferred supplier status at London’s newest venue – The Postal Museum in Farringdon.

It is a light, bright and contemporary space that benefits from a private sunny courtyard and innovative living wall and is available to hire for up to 140 people, the space is perfect for cocktail receptions, summer parties and laid back BBQs.

Also available is the Mail Rail, the Royal Mail’s very own underground tube line, available for private dinners & parties, corporate events, fashion shows and filming/photography opportunities.  It is a captivating blank canvas space, set in a historical building with countless inspiring architectural features, including vaulted brick arches and railway influences and the option to actually ‘ride’ the Mail Ride during the event.

The spaces will be used as a fully working museum during the day and available for hire outside of these times.

Present Communications ltd values long term relationships with clients and venues and we often say that our best work takes place in familiar spaces.  We can’t wait to show you all that is possible with the two new spaces and working at this venue for many years to come.
