Halls and Meeting Rooms for Hire

We are currently open for bookings, although availability is limited.

We are an arts & community centre located in Islington, 5-10 mins walk away from Angel Tube Station. Our 3-floor building was built in 1907 by what became the United Reformed Church. In 1998, Claremont Project, a charity originally founded by that church, became responsible for the entire building. The building has been through extensive refurbishment in recent years, the most recent works were completed in Spring 2020, when, after months of heavy and loud building works (!), most of our ground floor was refurbished and given a fresh new look.

Our centre offers a range of spaces available for hire for a variety of classes, workshops, performances, rehearsals, meetings and so on. We have three large halls and several meeting rooms available for hire. Our halls are very spacious and bright due to natural daylight and are suitable for a mix of events due to their large dimensions. All our spaces are wheelchair accessible and there is free WiFi available.

Please note, we generally only take community-oriented bookings and we do not accept bookings for receptions or parties.

More information about our halls and rooms can be found in our information pack that you can download here: Space Hire at Claremont

Please note, we have a large number of enquiries every day and although we would dearly like to answer all of them quickly, we are simply unable to do so. We would be grateful therefore if you would follow the steps below before contacting us.

Step 1: Check if the space is suitable and is available.

Please double-check the information given further down the page about the sizes and pricing for our spaces. (We are a charity and do not give discounts!)

Step 2: Make a formal booking request.

If you would like to make a formal booking request, please email us at with the following details of your request:

  1. Which space(s)
  2. Dates and times
  3. More details about yourself/your company and your booking.

Please note that we get so many hall enquiries that if you are not specific about the times and days you are interested in, and which are showing as being free in the calendar, your enquiry is likely to take very much longer to answer!

Therapy/Meeting Rooms:

Claremont offers several private rooms for hire. The rooms are suitable for one-to-one meetings or for up to three or four people. Room hire is an astonishingly good value: £10/hr for Highbury, £12/hr for Culpeper, and £14/hr for Garrett and Barnsbury. The latter two rooms can host anything from 1-2-1 sessions to Board meetings, small rehearsal groups, and other small group gatherings. Unlike many other therapy rooms, we do not require block bookings – you can book ad hoc if a room is available. Please enquire for further details.
