The Buffini Chao Deck: Conference setting


The Buffini Chao Deck is our newly refurbished events venue situated on the roof of the iconic National Theatre, on the South Bank of the Thames.

Offering panoramic views across London, the venue combines an outdoor riverside terrace with a large flexible event space. The building is wrapped in glazed panels which can be retracted on warmer days, so the uninterrupted view is preserved whatever the weather.

We're committed to reducing the carbon impact of the National Theatre at this time of climate crisis. Our Environmental Policy recognises our responsibility to take action, and our belief that theatre can also lead positive change.
