Its stunning interior evokes a cathedral like atmosphere and its excellent acoustic make All Saints a fine concert venue. With its gothic arches, All Saints is a striking venue and an incredibly versatile space.
Whether you are looking to organise a fashion show, book launch, award ceremony, theatre production, conference, lecture, a sophisticated dinner, or anything else we are open to creative ideas.
As there are no fixed pews, productions can be performed either on stage or in the round and the Church is also, therefore, perfect for events such as standing canapé receptions, balls and gala dinners.
Even smaller events such as seminars and wine tastings are just as perfectly suited as, due to the Church’s structure, events can be set up so that the space does not feel too large.
There is a very spacious Vestry which can be used as a green room or production room. The Upper Vestry which is used by our choir for rehearsals can also be hired at an additional fee.
There is a tea and coffee making area at the back of the church which can also be set up as a bar by using a TEN (Temporary Event Notice) from the council (all requests for TENs need to be approved by All Saints and an additional charge is applicable). There is a kitchen available in our Parish Hall if not already in use, or, if you prefer, caterers can bring in their own units and use the Vestry.
The William Hill & Son organ, one of the first to be awarded a historic organ certificate by the British Institute of Organ Studies, is available for use at an additional fee.
There is a Chapell grand piano available to hirers.
There is a high quality sound system and a lighting system than can be used with a DMX control system. We do recommend to bring in your own lighting rigs if you do not wish or have the facility to use DMX .
There are toilets in the church with an accessible toilet reached via a stair lift.
The Church does not sell tickets for concerts and this is the responsibility for the hirers to whom the requests should be made via their publicity materials.

(*please note that for a capacity over 500 a TEN license is required but no alcohol may be served).
“Played multiple concerts there, and as a venue it is incredible. Ideal place to hold a medium-large scale show or concert. As a church it is lovely, with vaulted ceilings and a massive organ. Staff are helpful and friendly, and a great community feel emanates from every corner”.
“…we were so happy with how everything went. Thank you so much for your help and use of a gorgeous venue – it really made the fashion show!!”
“Firstly, may I say what a wonderful privilege it was to stage the show in the beauty both aesthetic and acoustic of All Saints… and greatly look forward to staging another production in the church in 2013”.
“sales on the day and on the door were excellent which is a real tribute to the work you did putting posters all round and outside the church”.
“both performers and audience thoroughly enjoyed the church and the concert and loved the venue”
“The orchestra were very complimentary about playing there and given that many of them play all over the world with various ensembles in a range of great venues is praise indeed”.
