The Great British Menu at a Great British Venue

The Great British Menu at a Great British Venue

The Women’s Institute, formed in 1915 to revitalise rural communities and to encourage women to produce food for the nation during the First World War, celebrates their centennial at the historic Drapers' Hall.

Drapers’ Hall, an exclusive banqueting and events venue in Central London, hosts the event as part of the finale of UK’s longest running and most loved food competition series, The Great British Menu, airing on BBC2 (at 7pm on Friday 9th October 2015).

The Great British Menu finale is the culmination of months of hard work as the winning four chefs strive to deliver their dishes to the ladies of the Women’s Institute.

“We feel very honoured to host this wonderful event and look forward to welcoming the Women’s Institute back to Drapers’ Hall, ninety-one years after they held their National Craft Exhibition here in 1924 and feel we are a fitting location for this banquet.”

Louisa Stirling – Head of Events at Drapers’ Hall

Other iconic venues to host the finale include The Mansion House, St Paul’s Cathedral and The Royal Albert Hall.

Built in 1534 as the palace of Thomas Cromwell Earl of Essex, Drapers’ Hall is now available to hire for a wide variety of private functions, weddings and corporate events.
