What just happened?

To celebrate Vikings Live, we have replaced our Roman alphabet with the runic alphabet used by the Vikings, the Scandinavian ‘Younger Futhark’. The ‘Younger Futhark’ has only 16 letters, so we have used some of the runic letters more than once or combined two runes for one Roman letter.

For an excellent introduction to runes, we recommend Martin Findell’s book published by British Museum Press.

Stylish expressions, the East and West Foyers are used in conjunction with the BP and Stevenson Lecture Theatres respectively but can be hired individually for receptions, dinners or as an exhibition space.

The perfect space for:

  • receptions 
  • dinners 
  • exhibition space

Capacities and area

  • standing lunch/reception: 329
  • seated lunch/dinner: 120
  • area of each foyer: 248m²

The foyers continue the cool, creamy design of the impressive Great Court and are constructed from limestone giving a clean, sophisticated space in which to impress guests or delegates.

The foyers provide a welcome ‘blank canvas’ for clients wishing to brand the space and to exhibit their company or products with elegance and style. The large open space of the foyers are also perfect as a venue for a seated dinner for up to 120 people or a reception for up to 329. Each foyer has ample space for registration and cloakroom facilities.

The East and West foyers are wheelchair accessible
