Violin Factory

 Planning a green event

 

At the Violin Factory we are aware the increasing demands to address the environmental and social impacts of holding events. The Violin Factory is serious about environmental sustainability and we recognise the key challenges facing us worldwide.

We are not here to tell you how green your event should be, that is completely up to you. But we can do our part by offering you a venue was purpose built with sustainable and environmentally friendly principles in mind. From the materials used within the house, to the suppliers we work alongside, we are committed to protecting the environment! Our in-house expert team is on hand to offer advice, options and support across all aspects of the planning process in order that you can reach your green objectives with minimum effort and maximum effect.

By choosing the Violin Factory you are choosing on a venue that has a strong commitment to sustainability. We offer best practice in green event planning and execution with all events within our facilities. Long before single use plastic became a topical debate, we were ahead of the trend by installing an on-site filtered system which has saved an estimated 10,000 bottles a year – that’s approximately 200,000 plastic bottles! In addition to this, we have smart meters and all our electricity comes from 100% renewable sources.

Our carefully selected roster of catering partners is chosen with our sustainability principles in mind. They each have a strong emphasis on local and food and drink. Our team is happy to discuss specific requirements and options and in conjunction with our caterers will endeavor to meet your requirements and provide a sustainable choice with minimal environmental and social impact.

Based in the heart of London’s South Bank, we’re a stone throw away from Waterloo station which means that you and your guests can utilise the fantastic public transport options available to reach us. We have a detailed “Getting here” section on our website giving best travel options.

We offer free bespoke WIFI throughout the venue to encourage and assist you to keep as much of the delegate information online, but if you wish to provide paper materials and we provide recycling bins for materials once finished.

Finally, we’re proud to say that we hold a Gold award with Green Tourism for our sustainability principles. We recognise that working towards a sustainable future is ongoing, and therefore we continually assess our offering to ensure we’re able to offer our customers a venue that has not come at the expense of our planet.
