Open for socially distanced events in London

Evolution London will reopen on 1st October 2020, in line with the latest government guidance.

We are working with our clients, suppliers, contractors, security teams and health and safety advisors to ensure all preventative measures will be implemented from the moment the venue reopens. From revised layouts and cleaning procedures through to bespoke catering offerings and new technology packages, we are creating multiple solutions to enable events to take place safely at Evolution London.

You can rest assured that we at Smart Group are continuously listening to government guidance and revising our plans in order to ensure the safety of all who visit and work within our venue. Please read on to discover the measures we're implementing, or download our safer events guide below. If you have any questions at all regarding the venue and our procedures, please do get in touch.

    We’re introducing measures to ensure both our guests and staff maintain a minimum of 1m distance at all times.

    We’re enhancing our cleaning procedures, including a deep clean of the venue pre and post tenancy, with touch points and bathrooms sanitised frequently during the event tenancy.

    We’re introducing additional handwashing points throughout the venue and revising our existing facilities.

    We’re ensuring our teams receive full training on all new safety measures in order to keep both them and our guests safe. We will make sure all staff have access to appropriate PPE, along with adjusting team working patterns to avoid unnecessary exposure.

    We’re working with our in-house AV partner, Hawthorn, to create hybrid meeting solutions, so your guests can attend from home.

    We’re developing one way systems within the venue with separate entrances and exits, unique to specific events. The systems will help to regulate guest flow within the venue and avoid crowding.

    We’re revising menus and service styles, reevaluating best practice, and keeping in touch with suppliers and staffing agencies to ensure our new measures will be implemented.

    We’re developing clear pre-event guidelines for our clients, suppliers and staff. These will inform and reassure visitors to our venue, and explain what is expected of them before, during and after the event.

    We’re installing bike racks outside the venue and reminding our guests of our nearby parking, just a minute's walk away! We are fortunate to be located in the stunning Battersea Park which is lovely to walk or cycle through en route to Evolution London.


Usually host to much larger scale events, we are fortunate that Evolution London can still accommodate large capacities of approximately 750 guests with social distancing. It can also be utilised as a blank canvas that can be manipulated according to your specific event requirements. As a purpose-built event space, the external walls of the venue can be opened up to help with ventilation, and our multiple entrance and exit options help with organising flow throughout the venue. Our large outdoor space is also an excellent asset, providing room for extra toilets, or simply to extend your event space depending on your requirements.
