Perfect for concerts, comedy, spoken word, meetings and film nights; Union Chapel is a magnificent space for special events.

The Chapel is also available to hire for filming and photoshoots.

The building has hosted an array of talent from Tom Jones, Elton John, David Byrne and Noel Gallagher to Florence and the Machine, Amy Winehouse and Emeli Sande. Not to mention comedians such a Bill Bailey, Stewart Lee and Noel Fielding and authors such as Neil Gaiman, Hilary Mantel and Caitlin Moran.

The Main Auditorium at Union Chapel speaks for itself; it creates an ambience and intimacy between audience and performers unlike any other venue in London.

The Chapel is octagonal in shape with ground floor and balcony seating. All the seating is in the original wooden pews, which can’t be removed. The pews on the ground floor are gently raked and the balcony has galleried seating on 5 sides. Sightlines from all points in the auditorium are excellent.

Union Chapel is an iconic, much loved London venue, a working church and a centre for those homeless and in crisis. We have a unique role in our community and our neighbours are very important to us. As such we have a 85dB/’A’ weighted, slow (average) sound pressure limit measure at FOH and a 10.30pm performance curfew.

  • PA and Lighting as per UC Tech Spec

  • Bar and Kiosk from doors

When we don’t have a concert in the Chapel, the Bar can be hired as a smaller, more intimate alternative.

Event bookings for this space are done at short notice, subject to availability or during our quiet periods.
