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.

The next scheme will open for applications on Monday 01 May 2017.

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.

Successful applications must 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.

If you’re planning an event that is better suited to another venue, there are details of spaces to hire in the area on Islington Council’s website in this handy Rooms For Hire In Islington guide.
