Trinity Mirror Solutions has now held two great annual events at Behind The Bike Shed. The fact we returned in 2017 is testament to the professional service you get from the team.

The venue itself is convenient to get to, cool in terms of decor, and the food great value.

Everyone felt we had an awesome event this year and the staff at Behind The Bike Shed played no small part in achieving this!

TomTom Vio Launch

We chose The Bike Shed as the venue for our TomTom UK Product Launch event and I can honestly say it was a pleasure dealing with them from start to finish. The venue itself is fantastic with a great atmosphere and has so much style! It’s the little things but very refreshing to find a blank canvas venue that understand the annoying niggles when planning an event of scale; loads of power outlets, strong WiFi, versatile branding opportunities…the list can go on. Barney and Vikki were so accommodating with our requests pre-event and I couldn’t have asked more of the staff on the day. The event itself was a huge success and a lot of this is owed to The Bike Shed so thank you!’

Bulldog Gin

Running quite an outlandish event in central London, I had genuine concerns whether or not there was a venue around that had the versatility and professionalism to pull it off, and I am more than pleased to say that Behind The Bike Shed did, ten fold.
The combination of an experienced and professional events team mixed with a beautiful unique venue, is definitely a winning combo that I would highly recommend.
