Our community free hire scheme
Together with Islington Council Arts team, we run a scheme offering eight Islington-based voluntary, community and arts organisations the chance to hire our stunning venue for free to host an event.
Events held following last year’s scheme included the Cubitt Arts Spring Ball, a contemporary tea dance for the over-55s, the Islington Veterans Association, 70th anniversary of VE Day, and a Sport Islington celebration of local young sports stars.
Applicants must meet a certain criteria and demonstrate a commitment to provide an event or activity with a borough-wide impact that focuses on at least one of the following four areas: community cohesion; children and young people; diversity; and creative ways of engaging local residents. The next round of the scheme is due to open for applications this October.
Details of spaces to hire suitable for community events are on Islington Council’s website.
