A lovely space just off Hampstead heath for hire for children’s parties and concerts…

The wood-floored St John’s Downshire Hill basement, the Undercroft, has become a popular Hampstead venue for children’s birthday parties, and the church Main Hall has excellent acoustics making it a fine concert venue in NW3 (it is home to the Hampstead Arts Festival). If you would be interested in hiring either of these spaces or would like more information on what’s involved including some frequently asked questions, please download and read our Building Hire Information Sheet.

To see whether we have availability at a particular date and time of your event, please check the church calendar. Please note we only let the hall out for children’s parties on Saturdays, and do not let out any of the buildings on Sundays or whilst we have church events on. Please leave half an hour between your requested booking time and any event indicated on the calendar.
