St John’s is a beautiful church both inside and outside and it really is at the ‘Heart of the City’. With a number of potential performance spaces because of its different aspects, any kind of cultural activity is possible from art exhibitions, fashion shows, social gatherings, concerts, theatre and lectures. There is also the opportunity to perform outside in St John’s Square which is an open platform for audiences and it is surrounded by the city centre amenities too.
The church is well situated for audiences, groups or individuals to get to from rail, bus or car. There is also the benefit of being able to use the local restaurants, shops and the church has its own café area, which can seat up to 80 people, and which can be hired for performances too.
The pews can easily seat up to 280 people and there is also a meeting room that can be used for smaller meetings or events.
If this has sparked your interest and you are interested in hiring the church for an event then please see the information on church hire on the main St John’s website.
