"A frisson runs through you just to enter the Royal Society: you know you don’t belong there, and never will, and it is a thrill, like going at midnight into the Headmaster’s study. Its phenomenal history stands around you, its great marble floors and carved doors usher you into inner sancta. Such food! Keith cooked for our night and the dinner was superb, silently brought to table and cleared away by smiling waiters. It was gourmet dining with excellent wines and thick bundles of flowers and lofty candles. Glamour pervaded the room, glamour and braininess and extreme jollity. At every stage Nicholas da Costa had taken care of the details, so that the event could run like clockwork. Lovely place: how I wish I belonged! But how brilliant to know that mere mortals can book it for very normal occasions, which will immediately become as grand as can be, sprinkled with the fairy-dust of this ancient institution. I am already thinking up another excuse to get through the doors again. "

"The Royal Society hosted our inaugural TeenTech Awards in 2013. We were delighted with the whole experience and are returning again in 2014 and 2015. It is a complicated event, bringing together 40 teams of young people from across the UK who showcase their innovations through the entire building to judges drawn from across the science and technology industries, followed by a lively Awards ceremony. The Royal Society not only gave us a prestigious and very beautiful venue but a warm welcome and full technical and professional support in the run up to the day which was an overwhelming success. There was great attention to detail and a willingness to ensure we had everything we needed for a memorable day. This is a venue which really understands how to make a great day even better!"
