What we offer

From your very first enquiry your dedicated Event Executive will be on hand to help you plan and manage your event, offering you an array of options and covering every last detail.  

Our wealth of experience means we can help you shape and create the right ambiance for your event, whether you wish to use the Ri as a blank canvas or to exploit the huge historical interest and significance of the building.

We also have an in-house AV team who will look after all your technical requirements, ensuring that your event is smooth and glitch-free.


We have developed a range of full service packages tailored to suit your needs, whether that be for a day conference or private dining experience. All AV and catering requirements are taken care of, with our dedicated team on hand to make sure you have everything you need to get the most out of your day. Day delegate rates start from £74.00 +VAT per person, suitable for events for 50 to 440 people and include a variety of different rooms and a full range of services for you to run a successful event.


Our uplifting rooms and engaging spaces can be hired, combined and used in many different ways, during the day or evening.

We can accommodate 2 to 600 people, in light and airy meeting rooms with break-out areas for refreshments, to theatre-style conferences with buffet lunch or dinners, corporate presentations and receptions, and major branding events with different themes and activities throughout the entire venue.

Those little extras

The Ri is a place of immense historical significance, full of fascinating objects and artefacts.

Why not surprise and engage your delegates with a tour of the building by our Curator or a talk demonstrating how Ri scientists helped shape the modern world?

These can be as in-depth or light-touch as you like and can even be specially tailored for your occasion. Whatever your line of business, our Curator can delve into our archives and help find a connection to enhance your corporate event.

Our “canape science” will liven up your refreshment breaks or standing receptions, delight your delegates with bubbles, blasts & bangs and help to create an unforgettable event that makes the most of this richly significant location.
