Located within five minutes’ walk of Covent Garden and Holborn Tube stations, Crown Court Church of Scotland offers two excellent yet affordable spaces for hire in the heart of London’s theatreland. Our spaces can hired separately or together for a wide variety of uses, including concerts and rehearsals, receptions, social gatherings and meetings.
The Sanctuary is a unique, historic space with an impressive sanctuary, featuring traditional pews, balcony seating and stunning stained-glass windows. The sanctuary seats up to 200 people (130 in the lower sanctuary and 70 in the gallery), with a small raised platform at the front of the church. The choir pews can also be removed to create an additional space, suitable for rehearsals and concerts with small- to medium-sized musical ensembles.
The sanctuary has excellent lighting, with options for performance lighting at the front of the sanctuary. There is also a high-level sound system, with supporting microphones placed around the space, which can be used in conjunction with recently installed equipment for live streaming on our 5G Wifi network. The use of a good upright piano and a newly restored (2019) three manual organ by Bevington are included in the hire charge.
The Church Hall
Our church hall is a bright and flexible space below the church itself. Within the space, there is a sectioned off area with counters, which can act as a serving station for tea/coffee or pre-prepared drinks and nibbles.
There is a full-size grand piano available for rehearsal use, as well as tables and chairs for meetings or presentations. High speed 5G wifi is also available in the hall space.
