Alternative Venues London (AVL) is the name of our commercial lettings department which hires out Reserve Centres and Cadet units for non-military purposes.
Within Greater London there are 46 Reserve Forces Centres and 70 Cadet units available for hire, for up to seven days a week and most have secure parking.
Meetings and conferences can be for as few as ten to as many as 150. Dinner dances for 200 are possible in some locations. A key role is the provision of training facilities – both educational and physical – and Drill Halls lend themselves perfectly to this requirement.
We have also provided locations for weddings, receptions, examinations, theatre and film rehersals, product launches, exhibitions, auctions and fashion shows complete with catwalk.
Income generated from this rental activity is reinvested into supporting London's Reserves and Cadets.
