2022 RIBA Stirling Prize Party

The RIBA Stirling Prize is the UK’s most prestigious architecture award given to the architect of the building thought to be the most significant of the year for the evolution of architecture and the built environment.

Join the RIBA Stirling Prize party

Join us on Thursday 13 October for a spectacular evening of live performances, surprise announcements and unforgettable celebrations. Our annual Stirling Prize Party is one of the most exciting events in the architecture calendar – it’s not to be missed.  

Alongside revealing the winner of the Stirling Prize for the UK’s best new building, we’ll also be celebrating the winners of the Stephen Lawrence Prize, Neave Brown Award for Housing, and the Client of the Year.

With several different ticketing options, there’s something for everyone. From our premium package which includes a Champagne Taittinger reception followed by a seated three-course supper, to our slightly more informal Jarvis Party tickets where guests can enjoy live music and entertainment with friends and colleagues while watching the ceremony via live-stream for only £20.  

Tune in to our Stirling Prize live show
Hosted by one of architecture’s rising stars Hamza Shaikh. Join us for behind the scenes action, live interviews and the big announcement of the UK’s best new building. 

Watch the live stream now.

Our fantastic line up for the night includes
 
NIMMO 
Queer, London-based dance music duo Sarah Nimmo and Reva Gauntlett performing cathartic, joyful music that reaches deep inside the soul. Following tours with Hercules and Love Affair, MØ and Years and Years whilst also DJing and throwing their own club nights in London and beyond, they attract fans with their inimitable energy and style. 
 
Hot Gold Quartet 
Jazz band led by bass player Louis van der Westhuizen and featuring Mark Kavuma on Trumpet, Lyle Barton on Piano and Will Arnold-Forster on Guitar, performing a repertoire taking inspiration from Miles Davis’ late 1950’s era. Think ‘The Birth of the Cool’ and ‘Kind of Blue’. 
 
Hamza Shaikh 
Hosting our live stream show, emerging architectural designer, artist, and social media ‘influencer’, Hamza is also the host of Two Worlds Design, a podcast series exploring the multidisciplinary potential of architecture. 
 
Jarvis Party MC Kristopher Adelaide  
Architectural Design Director and founder of London based studio KA-A Studio.  
Kristopher will be our Jarvis party host, keeping us up to speed with the evening's events, introducing the live music and of course the build up to the Stirling Prize winner announcement, streamed live and direct onto our big theatre screen.

Headline Band – Stereo MC's  
Special headline performance from 1980’s English Hip Hop/Electric dance group Stereo MC’s, whose biggest global hit ‘Connected’ reached number two in the UK singles chart and earned the band a BRIT award for Best Group and Best Album. 

Bring your colleagues, clients, family and friends for a celebration not to be missed. Tickets are limited and selling fast so book now to secure your place to be part of architecture’s party of the year.
