Hire

'The site is spectacular… the subtle play of light, sky and sea inside and outside is exhilarating, even euphoric.' Burlington magazine

Turner Contemporary is the South East’s newest and most spectacular venue for hire. Its coastal location and striking building, designed by award-winning architect David Chipperfield, offers a truly unique and inspiring setting for all corporate and private events, weddings, parties and more.

Located in the historic seaside town of Margate, the gallery overlooks the North Kent coast, and the same beautiful skies that Britain’s best-loved painter JMW Turner described as ‘… the loveliest in all Europe’. Combine the breath-taking views and exquisite architecture with our exceptional, bespoke service and Turner Contemporary offers you a versatile, stylish and modern venue for your event.

Since opening in April 2011, Turner Contemporary has hosted major national and local events. Not only will guests have an unforgettable experience, but as a registered charity, all revenue will help us sustain and grow our programme of exhibitions, education and events.


'We were so lucky to have our wedding reception inside the Clore Learning Studio at Turner Contemporary. We had everything we wanted and so much more. The spectacular Turner sunset and view overlooking the sea, the art - including the unexpected 360 degree visual delights created by the reflection of Sol Lewitt's wall drawing on the windows at nightfall - all added to the perfect and unique setting This experience was taken to the next level by the brilliant menu and service from Marcio and the Leafi team and the never-ending support from Jennifer and the staff at the Turner. It was this incredible team effort that let us sit back, relax and truly enjoy every moment of the day'
Arlene and John 


‘The venue could not have been more perfect for our Golden Wedding anniversary. The food and drinks were outstanding, the support that you and your team gave us was fantastic and having the sea view as a backdrop was amazing. The facilities worked very well: projecting our pictures discreetly onto the wall while our music played in the background was ideal; and the use of the balcony and availability of the gallery and its exhibitions further enhanced the occasion.’ 
Henry and Elsa

'We celebrated our 25th Anniversary at Turner Contemporary. It was a fantastic evening. The sun was out, the gallery was set against a blue sky, and a beautiful sunset ended this highly enjoyable evening. Our guests were very impressed with the gallery, the professionalism and excellent organisational skills contributed significantly to the success of this occasion. Thank you Turner Contemporary.' 
Betteridge & Milsom
