The Euston-based venue, which is currently under construction, will include the redevelopment of a 1,000-capacity auditorium. It will also benefit from a number of sustainability features including energy-efficient lighting, wall insulation and heat-exchange systems.

The Light, which also features a skylight, will be able to cater for a number of event set-ups including theatre and cabaret style meetings, graduations, product launches and exhibitions.

Paul Grey, head of facilities at Friends House, said: "We are eagerly following the progress of The Light’s transformation. It is with great excitement that we look forward to unveiling the venue’s new identity.

"The Light is not only a contemporary events space; it is also an important place of history at the heart of the Quaker’s centrally-managed operations in Britain. As such, respect for heritage and the environment are of paramount importance to us."
