Venue Hire

Whether you’re looking for a venue to cater for your private event, such as a birthday, christening, wake, baby shower or wedding breakfast, or a business meeting or conference, we have the ideal space for you at either Fox@ExCel or Fox@Connaught.

We have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to organising and running events here at Fox Bars and Restaurants, and we all relish a challenge. So no matter what the size, you can rest assured your event will be in safe hands.

We are happy to brand areas with pop up banners and create any style of room using the furniture we have, so just let us know what layout you’d like. We also have a red carpet for those extra special events!
