Limehouse Town Hall

646 Commercial Road, Limehouse, E14 7HP, London, England

*** PLEASE READ *ALL* OF THIS PAGE BEFORE CONTACTING US. *** Most of your initial questions should be answered here.

Since we are volunteers it may take some time to get back to you, and unfortunately we cannot accommodate every request. (Hint: If you want a night club or pub, go to a night club or pub!)

Since this hall is near a residential area, we only host a FEW late night parties a year (mostly charity fundraisers), we try not to upset the neighbours!

Situated in Commercial Road, E14. In need of restoration, events taking place here are mostly to raise funds for the upkeep and eventual restoration of the building back in to community use. There is a large hall (approx 12m x 18m) on the first floor and a variety of smaller rooms (subject to availability) flexible space for hire for short/longer term projects.

Due to the state of the building, you are advised to come and see it before considering booking. Let's just say it needs more than a little refurbishment, and it looks better in the dark! So, if you want somewhere that's pristine and gleaming clean, this isn't going to be for you. If you want a unique, interesting and quirky location that's pretty flexible for your event, and can be a bit creative to work around the building's wobbly old bits, then this might be suitable!

Unfortunately the building is not currently fully wheelchair accessible (there are steps from the street and up to the main hall.) But we are happy to assist in any way we can.

Nearest DLR Westferry or Limehouse, and bus stops outside.

Suitable uses might be for art exhibitions, lectures, film screenings, art/craft uses (sculpture and set building), photo shoots, filming, rehearsals, training for audio and lighting, workshops or fundraisers. We've also hosted small theatre/opera productions.

We can apply for a LIMITED NUMBER of Temporary Event Licences per year, for example entertainment / alcohol sales, and we are happy to advise on this, depending on the nature of the event. We are able to supply staff for door duties, general assistance, bar, (and for larger events, cloakroom and door security requirements can be arranged.)

There are NO ON-SITE KITCHEN facilities, although there is a small room for prep/ washing up etc. We can recommend several local catering suppliers. It's possible to make tea/coffee/refreshments and we have a bar area plenty of fridges.

We can arrange PA/audio facilities (live performance and PA/film setups), projector+screen, and variety of lighting arrangements for an extra hire fee, or you can bring your own equipment.

Parking: There's NO parking on-site. It is possible to deliver / park a vehicle in Newell Street depending on the time of day, and limited parking in nearby streets in the evenings and at weekends.
