Great acoustics helped us enjoy a memorable concert in this ancient building. I am not comfortable with reading signs for a bar (juxtaposed with toilets) hanging within a church building but once I swallowed my old belief (of money in the temple not mixing) I...More

Have attended several concerts here in the last couple of years, from acoustic to full band and it's always fantastic. Great sound considering it's a church. The atmosphere is brilliant, really friendly and relaxed. Great bar upstairs. Can't wait to come back.

A really nice venue for intimate gigs, convenient location, friendly staff. I was there for a concert, Russell Crowe's Indoor Garden Party, and I had a great time, glad the band picked this Union Chapel for the show.

We went to the Justin Hayward concert last week. He, Mike and Julie were fabulous and all enhanced by the venue. Great acoustics and a very intimate atmosphere. If you are going, take a cushion cos the seats are a a bit hard.

A great venue. Saw Fever Pitch, the opera on Sunday. Really enjoyed the community opera and Nick Hornby was in the audience.

A lovely experience, we went to hear the music concert and were very impressed. You sit on original wooden pews so therefore I would not want to sit for more than 2 hours. A lovely experience in an interesting ex-church.
