Our Corporate Social Responsibility Commitment | Merlin Venues


Here at Merlin Venues we take our role as ambassadors of sustainability very seriously.

We are always working to identify opportunities for social value and environmental change and we want to take the lead in ensuring that our events are delivered as sustainably as possible.

At Merlin Venues, our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is woven into the fabric of everything we do. As part of the Merlin Entertainments family, we share a deep passion for not just delivering exceptional events and experiences, but also making a meaningful impact in the communities we serve and the world at large.

We’re thrilled to announce our latest initiative in this regard: for every delegate booked at our venues, we pledge to donate one pound to the SEA LIFE Trust or Merlin’s Magic Wand. This not only underlines our commitment to making a difference but also means that when you choose to host your event at Merlin Venues, your organisation becomes a part of this inspiring journey, contributing directly to your own CSR goals.

Our efforts to drive positive change span across multiple areas:

Sustainability & Conservation: Our commitment to sustainable practices is unwavering. We work relentlessly to ensure that our events are in line with sustainable guidelines. From serving Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified seafood, Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certified or organically farmed food, to only sourcing pole or line caught tuna, we strive to promote responsible consumption.

Food Supply: Our catering partners, Seasoned, share our vision for sustainability, reducing waste, promoting health through nutrition, and supporting local producers. They’ve incorporated daily plant-based dishes into their menus, creatively repurpose rejected produce, recycle extensively and even convert waste frying oil into biodiesel.

People & Communities: We take pride in being responsive to our guests’ diverse needs and being a committed community partner. Our child-focused charity, Merlin’s Magic Wand, provides magical experiences to children who need them most, through Magical Days Out, Merlin’s Magic Spaces, and Merlin’s Magic On Tour initiatives.

Animal Care & Conservation: We uphold the highest standards of animal welfare and contribute to the advancement of breeding programmes and conservation. Through our animal care network and our support for the SEA LIFE Trust, we actively work to protect marine life and their habitats.

Environment & Corporate Governance: As a global company, we manage our resources responsibly and seek to minimise our environmental impact. Our robust governance framework ensures we maintain the highest standards across all operations.

By hosting your event at Merlin Venues, you’re not just booking a space. You’re supporting sustainable fishing, contributing to the welfare of animals, helping children in need, supporting local communities, and making a significant step towards a greener planet. Your event could be the change we wish to see in the world.
