Union Chapel

A working church, a drop-in homeless centre and a beloved music venue – Union Chapel sort of does it all, doesn't it. The Grade I listed building first opened its doors as a venue in 1991 as part of a programme to restore the building and to increase access to the performing arts. Previously it had acted solely as a Congregational Church, built and opened at the tail end of the 18th century (a capacity in which it still acts today). Recent concerts include Aimee Mann, Eddi Reader, Keb' Mo', Micah P Hinson and Mavis Staples. In 2012, Union Chapel was voted London's Best Live Music Venue by Time Out magazine readers.

The building also houses the Union Chapel Bar, Margins Kitchen (staffed by recently homeless people, with all profits to charity) and a kiosk. The closest tube stations are Highbury & Islington and Angel, and bus routes 4, 19, 30, 43, 271, 277, 279, 393 stop nearby.

Fight for your right to party

31 Jul 2017

Key voices in the fight to save our nightlife tell us why we should care about our night-time industries
