RAF Museum awards £6m contract to Peyton and Bryne and Peyton Events

Events, hospitality and retail at the RAF Museum in London will now be provided by Peyton and Byrne, which is owned by Sodexo.

Peyton and Byrne and Peyton Events, which became part of the Sodexo family in October 2016, will operate the contract, worth £6 million until 2023.

Peyton Events will run seven dedicated conference and events spaces.

The museum has a wide variety of daytime event spaces available, including a 200-capacity tiered lecture theatre, a spacious exhibition room and smaller meeting rooms for board meetings and break out spaces. The RAF Museum also plays host to evening events with spacious hangars available to hire for dinners, receptions and parties.

Charlotte Evans, site general manager at Sodexo, said: “We look forward to welcoming delegates and guests to the RAF Museum and are excited by the opportunities ahead of us. The museum has a whole range of conference and events spaces and is now the largest of our London venues run by Peyton Events. The venue offers a truly unique experience and we are very much looking forward to bringing these to life here.”
