Compass Group’s premium hospitality company, RA Venues, has been awarded a contract to provide hospitality and catering services at the Royal Armouries Museum, Leeds.
Situated at Leeds Dock, the venue and events space plays host to a range of exhibitions, private dining functions, Christmas parties, weddings, and conferences throughout the year.
The contract award which runs until 2024, will see RA Venues provide full catering services across the venue’s twelve spaces, including the 4,000-capacity New Dock Hall and the recently launched café space, The Master’s.
RA Venues will also develop a range of Royal Armouries conference and events packages and range of Christmas party packages set to be launched in February.
Steve Chandler, Managing Director of RA Venues commented that: “RA Venues is very proud and honoured to be working in a long-term partnership with the Royal Armouries Museum. The venue boasts unrivalled large-scale facilities with independent access from the Museum providing fantastic flexibility for our many clients. New refurbishments in both retail and catering outlets are presented in a complimentary theme, together with a fresh open aspect alongside Leeds Dock that leads to extended dwell times from Museum visitors and encourages repeat visits.”
The Royal Armouries Museum appointment is the latest addition to the RA group’s portfolio of leading cultural and heritage destinations that currently comprises Bryn Williams at Somerset House, Liberty London, Bristol Zoo, and many more.
