It might be just under 8 months away, but the team at RIBA at 66 Portland Place are embracing all things Christmas with the reveal of an amazing custom-made gingerbread replica of the stunning Art Deco venue.

The impressive gingerbread model was commissioned to celebrate the return of RIBA’s popular ‘Build Your Own’ Christmas party package for 2022. Just as this gingerbread model was created step-by-step and personalised according to the brief, with the ‘Build Your Own’ package clients can create their perfect party at 66 Portland Place by selecting the individual elements – room, F&B, entertainment – that match budget and objectives.  

Starting from £70+VAT per person, the popular ‘Build Your Own’ experience – a subtle nod to RIBA’s architectural roots – is incredibly flexible with the opportunity to select your preferred event space at 66 Portland Place, choose from multiple festive food & drink options, as well as deciding on the entertainment and décor to suit your bespoke party vibe.  
Caterina Jane Alves, Head of Venues at RIBA at 66 Portland Place, says: “We are so thrilled with our incredible gingerbread replica of 66 Portland Place which we commissioned as a way to bring our ‘Build Your Own’ 
Christmas party package to life. The concept behind these packages is to give clients a range of options when it 
comes to the choice of room, F&B and so forth, whilst giving them the scope to create a personalised party 
experience for their guests. Events are increasingly being organised within a shorter time frame and our ‘Build 
Your Own’ packages have been designed to streamline the event planning process, particularly for last minute 
events and celebrations.  
If you’ve not had the chance to celebrate the Christmas season with your team or clients in the way you 
wanted due to the pandemic, this year is the perfect time to get everyone together and give them an 
experience to remember. The diary is already starting to fill up and we cannot wait to create some standout 
Christmas celebrations that will be well worth the two-year wait! 
Contact the team at RIBA at 66 Portland Place to enquire or book a showround where you can catch a glimpse
