CCT Venues-Smithfield

Help us design our new venue!

CCT Venues-Smithfield was our first venue, opening its doors for the first time back in 2005. The venue has a fascinating history, and from January 2020, it will re-open with a fresh new look to celebrate the iconic building which it is housed in, as well as all the quirkiness that London has to offer.

However we don’t want to just tell you how great the venue will be; we want YOUR suggestions to tell us how we can create the perfect space for you.

Whether it’s a new concept for refreshments, or a fun idea for a coffee zone, interesting themes for the rooms, or something as straightforward as what shape or size of rooms you would like.

Let us know below what you’d like to see CCT Venues-Smithfield offer.

Venue Overview

Smithfield Market’s website explains a little about the area and this world-famous building.

 

Smithfield 1

Located within the Square Mile of the City of London, Smithfield Market is housed in three listed buildings.

It is a place packed with history (and there has been a livestock market on the site for over 800 years) yet it is as modern as tomorrow with its state of the art facilities for the receiving, storing and despatching of meat and poultry.

Smithfield 2

There was also a murkier side to the area, because from the early Thirteenth Century it was used as a place of execution for criminals.

Wat Tyler, the leader of the Peasants’ Revolt, was executed here, as was Scottish hero William Wallace and of course, it was the location of Bartholomew Fair – three days of merrymaking, dancing, selling and music which over the centuries became the most debauched and drunken holiday in the calendar. Even so, it lasted almost 700 years before it was eventually closed in 1855.
