The experience is only boosted by our Showtime rewards scheme, a meeting and events rewards programme that offers two free cinema tickets for every enquiry and points, reverting to pounds for all confirmed events, means that the delegates are part of the club and will always want to choose De Vere Holborn Bars for their London event solution.

The National Railway Museum
The National Railway Museum in York opened in 1975 as the first national museum founded outside London. It holds more than a million objects celebrating the history of train travel, making it the largest museum dedicated to train travel in the world. Today, it’s firmly established as one of Yorkshire’s most prominent large venues.
The museum’s distinctive collection makes it a popular setting to host parties with a difference, which guests will remember for years to come. Clients can book the museum’s Great Hall, home to a stunning display of the finest locomotives, including Mallard – the world’s fastest steam train, or Station Hall, where the museum’s famous royal vehicles are displayed. Both spaces provide an inspiring, nostalgic backdrop for parties, as well as a guaranteed talking point.
Well Met at Leeds Beckett University
Well Met, the Conference Office at Leeds Beckett University, began as an opportunity to use the ample, high-quality teaching spaces at Leeds Beckett (then Leeds Metropolitan University) to bring in business that would further supplement the educational and research purposes of the institution. 10 years on, the organisation has proved so successful it is stepping out on its own to manage and run a dedicated conferencing facility – Cloth Hall Court.
With a dedicated, superbly located, high-quality venue as a focus for term-time activities and prestigious, attractive academic room stock during the summer, Well Met is in an excellent position to be able to offer a consistent service unhampered by some of the compromises that can limit traditional academic or hotel venues. Cloth Hall Court sits directly across the road from Leeds Train Station making it exceptionally convenient to access from across the region and the country (2hr10 from London, 40mins from Manchester).
Well Met has shown itself to be a resilient and forward-thinking part of the Leeds conference and events scene, partnering with competitors and local institutions to bring in business like the Teach First Summer Institute that is a real asset to the local economy.
