Islington Assembly Hall is a stunning venue in the heart of the borough on bustling Upper Street. As well as holding music concerts, fairs and other public events, the impressive space is available to hire for a range of corporate, private and community events.
The Grade II listed building first opened in 1930 and was extensively refurbished in 2010 by Islington Council. Today, it retains much of its art deco interior and original architectural detail, including its magnificent stage. Modern enhancements include a high-spec PA system with a range of audio-visual equipment.
The main hall holds up to 500 people standing for a concert or up to 230 in a theatre-style layout for seated concerts, conferences and civil ceremonies. The tiered balcony seats a further 200 guests and is used at the majority of concerts held at our impressive venue.
The venue is easily accessible by public transport. It is a short walk from Highbury and Islington, Angel and Essex Road stations, and is served by the 4, 19, 30 and 43 bus routes.
For full details about the venue, including upcoming events, visit the Islington Assembly Hall website.
For the last two years, we have run a scheme that offers Islington-based community organisations and charities the chance to apply for hire of the hall for free. We are delighted to be running it again for organisations looking to hold an event between April 2014 and March 2015. We will have more details on this page from mid-December and we will post on our Facebook page when it goes live. Like us on Facebook to hear about it first!
