David Sainsbury

Every type of event and space

David Sainsbury Room

This bright and well lit space offers views over the Mall, while its first class facilities and blank canvas potential make the space exceptionally well suited for medium sized receptions and meetings.

Through his Gatsby Charitable Foundation, Lord Sainsbury of Turville Hon FREng has been a generous benefactor of the Academy’s work to address longstanding issues in UK education. The Foundation’s support over many years has benefited many thousands of students and teachers in schools, colleges and universities across Britain. Lord Sainsbury is a passionate advocate for the fields of science and engineering and their importance to economic and social well-being.
