OEC Private Banquets

Contemporary Private Banquet Hire

Are you looking to host a showstopper event? Banquets are back. As a nation of good food lovers, it’s no surprise that dining events are making a comeback for significant social and professional gatherings. Ideal for networking and corporate events, weddings and parties, charity galas and university dinners, celebrate, promote and network in style at a contemporary banquet venue.

Receiving a banquet invitation will never lose its sense of thrill and anticipation. The perfect excuse to dust off formal attire, modern dining events are known for being a little out of the ordinary. Banquets are often themed to reflect corporate or charity branding, such as colours and regional delicacies on the menu, or a personal interest such as culturally inspired menu choices and decoration.

The key to a successful event is finding the right venue. This is a combination of location, décor, catering, hospitality, and atmosphere. Exclusively yours, OEC Sheffield is a modern fine dining event venue located in the Hillsborough area of Sheffield. This popular venue comes with an experienced event planning team to support you all the way.

OEC Private Banquets

Fabulous Feasting

It’s all about the food. Dining events come in many shapes and sizes to fit the hosts’ theme and budget. The most popular format is the traditional 3-course dinner. The OEC banquet menu provides a sumptuous variety of dishes for the organiser to choose from, blending culinary classics with foodie trends to indulge guests.

Informal feasting is another popular choice for the modern banquet. Platters laden with hot and cold delicacies are placed on the centre of each table for guests to help themselves. Sharing platters can be a fantastic icebreaker for networking events. Talk to our team about informal feasting.

Organisers with a theme in mind will want to take advantage of the OEC’s bespoke menu design. Whatever era or style you want to encapsulate, OEC chefs are experienced in delivering fine food for largescale events.
