'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. 

Your hire today... supports our tomorrow

Not only will guests have an unforgettable experience, but as a registered charity, all revenue will help us to realise our vision to make art accessible to all, and to make a greater impact on Margate's regeneration and the lives of thousands of people.

What our clients say...
'The room was fantastic thank you so much. I’m very grateful; we had a brilliant afternoon brainstorming ideas to improve our ability to help more homeless and vulnerable people across Kent.'
David, Porchlight

'The Turner staff were extremely attentive and accommodating both in the organisation of the event and on the night. The venue was absolutely stunning, with beautiful décor. The food was wonderfully presented and very delicious! Overall a wonderful, thoroughly enjoyed night!'
Fosters Law

'We had a great time at our "do". Everyone commented on the atmosphere of the venue and the quality of the food for such a large number was exceptional! Your staff were brilliant including your catering manager; they could not be more helpful. You may well find our friends making future bookings as they were unaware the Turner had these private facilities: they do now! Once again many thanks for helping to arrange an excellent event. I intend to have my 80th at the Turner in 10 years time!'

'As a sponsor of Turner Contemporary (the Summer of Colour Festival and Mondrian Exhibition) London Array recently held an off-site Team Meeting in the Foyle Rooms at Turner Contemporary. The room was large and spacious and the view over the seafront contributed to a very relaxed meeting environment. It was followed by a catered lunch served in the Foley Rooms provided by the café attached to the Gallery. The food was not only excellent but very generous for the number catered for. Some of our Team then took advantage of enjoying the exhibitions at the gallery after the meeting. A very successful day and our thanks to Jennifer and the events team at Turner Contemporary for taking care of all of the arrangements.'
London Array

'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
