About the Royal Opera House
One of London’s most famous venues and home to The Royal Opera, and The Royal Ballet. The 300-year-old venue is also a popular London event venue. Located within an hour reach of our Wimbledon London SW19 depot, The Royal Opera House or simply ‘Covent Garden’ as it is popularly known, hosts private and corporate events as well as weddings.
When the Opera house first opened in the 18th century the event logistics would have been a very literal form of horsepower.
Previous events to be held at ROH
Some of the prestigious events held at the Royal Opera House have included the GQ awards and the BAFTAs. One event of particular interest to us as a Wimbledon based Event Logistics company was the Wimbledon Champions Dinner hosted at the Royal Opera House in 2014.
