Union Chapel is an award winning music venue in Islington, North London. But it’s more than that, it’s Victorian Gothic architectural jewel, that’s still a working church, home to an incredible organ and the base for The Margins Project which works with people facing homelessness and isolation.
Coming to an event at Union Chapel supports the conservation and development of the building. Union Chapel operates as a charity dedicated to looking after the space and opening it to a diverse group of people. In the past 25 years the Chapel has gone from facing demolition to being Grade 1 listed and from being virtually abandoned to welcoming tens of thousands of visitors a year.
We have been voted London’s favourite venue in public polls an amazing three times, in 2002, 2012 and 2014.

Incredible acoustics. Saw Brian Fallon, sound quality was great. Alcohol free venue but there's a bar next door. They do make hot drinks though. One of the best venues I've ever been to. It helped that Brian Fallon is an incredibly talented musician as well of course.
Incredible venue ! 95% of the seats provide great visibility for the stage . If you cozy up and peapolr aren't Scrooge , everyone can sit with a good view. The sound is superb , incredibly well sound system and tuned to the place. Easy and beautiful listening! And what a building !!
