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.
