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.

Wow, amazing. Sound was incredible, and the food was bloody excellent! Stilton and brocolli quiche, a stuffed aubergine, amazing lime tart. Absolutely delicious!!! And Kershaw was awesome. So was Chesney Hawkes for that matter.

2nd visit to this lovely church. The best setting for a High Kings concert. Visited with the family as young as 7. Would definitely go again.

Went to see Marc Cohn again here last week - (he was almost as good as last year, but to be fair there was a level of emotion to last year's concert that could never be repeated). However, this time I was on crutches after...More
