Venue description

The Deck is closed for the installation of a brand new, contemporary rooftop venue at the National Theatre designed by Haworth Tompkins Associates
The new space will open in Summer 2018 and replace our current venue, The Deck, and is being developed to cater for the growing demand for events, private parties and weddings on the South Bank. All of the revenue generated by the new event space will support the work of the National Theatre.
During this refurbishment we will not be able to host events in our dedicated events venue, however, if you would like to book one of our meeting rooms at the National Theatre please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
To receive updates about our exciting plans and new packages for the 2018 summer season in our brand new venue please email


The Deck provides an unusual and stylish venue for your daytime event. It has a unique inside-outside feel, created by the use of translucent materials that let through the natural daylight.
The fresh modern architecture of The Deck make it a great blank canvas for your daytime conference, press event or product launch.

Along the Thames, the city bustles with life: black cabs teem across Waterloo Bridge towards Covent Garden, and as dusk falls, the sparkling lights of one of the most iconic panoramas of the capital are revealed, providing an inspiring backdrop for any event.
The light, modern structure of The Deck and its adjoining terrace make the most of this prime location. What better place, after all, to host a business or social event than the glamorous South Bank? Not only is the area synonymous with high culture and the arts, but it is just a five-minute walk from Waterloo Station.

Weddings and Receptions
London’s skyline and the Thames provide the perfect photographic backdrop for couples seeking a ‘city chic’ wedding venue with a difference. Once your vows have been taken you will step out onto The Deck's private outdoor terrace where you can enjoy champagne and canapés with your closest friends and family, high above London’s vibrant South Bank.
Marriage and Civil Partnership ceremonies
Marrying an achingly cool and contemporary structure with retractable translucent walls, The Deck opens onto a capacious terrace providing a chic ceremony destination for up to 100 guests. Come rain or shine, wedding parties can revel in The Deck's distinctive inside-outside feel and dress the space to stage an event to remember forever.
The National Theatre's Hospitality Events team will manage your day from beginning to end to ensure that everything is perfect and will assist you with all of your pre-wedding planning.

We can also host your reception or wedding breakfast, though it should be noted that dancing is not permitted in The Deck. Please speak to our sales team if you are interested in throwing a glamorous wedding party with wonderful views and delicious food.



The Deck is one of my favourite London venues. It's a simple space but the setting is just spectacular and the in-house caterers take a really fresh approach to BBQ food. Perfect for a summer party!

The Deck proved a spectacular event space for our cocktail party. Our guests loved the beautiful cocktails and canapés served against the stunning backdrop of the London skyline at night.
