A lovely experience, we went to hear the music concert and were very impressed. You sit on original wooden pews so therefore I would not want to sit for more than 2 hours. A lovely experience in an interesting ex-church.

Wow, amazing. Sound was incredible, and the food was bloody excellent! Stilton and brocolli quiche, a stuffed aubergine, amazing lime tart. Absolutely delicious!!! And Kershaw was awesome. So was Chesney Hawkes for that matter.

Visited Union Chapel for a Tom McRae gig. First time at the venue and was really impressed. The acoustics are excellent and suited the style of Tom's music perfectly. Really atmospheric evening. Seating was unreserved for this gig, which I guess would be the same...More

2nd visit to this lovely church. The best setting for a High Kings concert. Visited with the family as young as 7. Would definitely go again.

My girlfriend and I went to see Luke Sital Singh here. First time visiting and we were impressed with the scale and how good it is as a music venue. Definitely recommend checking out a gig here.

Went to see Four Play at Union Chapel. A most amazing venues with superb accoustics! Can't recommend highly enough and go eat in the cafe first, incredible value for money and again a unique experience.

Intimate, informal and steeped in atmosphere. The music sounded fantastic, the location was mesmerising, it's like no other venue when a hushed audience are completely taken by the performance. The location also boasts a nice bar area

As well as a functioning church, the building hosts various musical events. It's ideal for being up close with the performers and clearly they have an established set up, meaning that some really good acts want to play there. We sat in the gallery which...More
