The Royal Society is a self-governing Fellowship of many of the world’s most distinguished scientists drawn from all areas of science, engineering, and medicine. The Society’s fundamental purpose, as it has been since its foundation in 1660, is to recognise, promote, and support excellence in science and to encourage the development and use of science for the benefit of humanity.

 Nicholas da Costa, Head of Conference Services at the Royal Society, said: “The Royal Society offers the ultimate in classic Christmas festivities in the most elegant of surroundings. As a charity guests can also be assured that their celebrations will in part act as a gift to others – because the funds we raise help us recognise, promote, and support excellence in science for the benefit of humanity. We were and remain host to some of the world’s greatest scientific minds – including Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, and Stephen Hawking.  Why not come and walk in their footsteps this Christmas?”

For us, detail is everything. From bespoke floral arrangements and imaginative entertainment, to security services and state-of-art audio-visual technology, we take care of the complexities, allowing you to focus on the event itself.

On special request, the Royal Society can offer a private tour of some of the world’s most significant scientific research and discoveries.

The Royal Society has worked in partnership with its caterer Harbour & Jones to unearth delicious, sustainably produced, seasonal British produce for its menu. This includes, by way of example: Bronze Turkeys from Norfolk; Goldsmith’s Middle White Pigs from West Sussex, and Rookard’s Honey from Essex.
