Upper Hall / Bar

Originally the Lecture Hall for the church, the atmospheric Upper Hall Bar is available for rehearsals, meetings and workshops.

Our licensed bar is located in the room and is open during concerts and events in the Chapel. The Upper Hall is also available for private evening hires - please enquiry with the venue office to check suitability of events. We regret that we cannot take wedding reception, birthday party or children's party bookings.
