At 8 Northumberland Avenue it's clear to see that we adore our jobs. Our MD and founder Charles Boyd has instilled this love and knowledge for events and our venue across the team. Quite simply we can't be persuaded that anywhere beyond our centrally located London venue is quite as wow a place to work and that's why you'll see familiar happy faces over the years. The ethos of our team is to strive to continue to learn, to deliver above and beyond expectations and to feel that buzz of events through to our core.
Charles has a wealth of experience in hospitality, catering and venues, having founded one of the largest catering companies in the UK before turning his hand to develop the historic 8 Northumberland Avenue event space. His mission is to ensure that London's most central venue is looking at its best for your event, that the team are constantly pushing boundaries and that technology and modern ideas are at the forefront of the event space.
Following four years studying catering and hospitality Adrian honed his operational experience at Michelin restaurants before moving onto high profile events. He started working with Charles Boyd in 1997 where they won numerous high profile catering contracts including the Queen’s garden parties at Buckingham Palace. His extensive experience means he ensures the core company operations run smoothly and oversee delivery of all businesses and financial controls for the venue and your event.
