Venue Hire


We have two spaces and a dedicated venue hire team.

The Nave is a stunning venue for your workshop, talk, away-day, film-showing, concert, party or music event, and is equipped with a laser projector, sound system & microphones, uplighters, and an upright piano. High ceilings, original arches, a stained glass window and fascinating history provide a wonderful atmosphere.

The Bedouin Tent is a magical and unique space set in a beautiful courtyard garden – an oasis in the city. Woven from goats hair, and built on principles of sacred geometry, it is a harmonious space where people can meet as equals. It’s perfect for dialogue, workshops, meetings and away days, baby showers, bridal showers and proposals!

We’d love to hear from you – please get in touch to check availability.

So happy that I discovered St Ethelburga's and it was absolutely perfect for my birthday tea party. It is a beautiful, historical, spiritual, peaceful space. Accessible and very easy to get to from Liverpool Street Station. The caretaker Ionnis and the barman were both absolutely lovely, and couldn't have done more to make it special for me. I will never forget the wonderful afternoon I had in St Ethelburga's with my family and friends.

Amazing vibes, beautiful place very centrally located within 3 minutes walk from Liverpool Street train and tube station on the main road. The place has its own ambience with high ceilings and is quiet on the inside despite being in a busy area in the City of London.

We had a great experience at the venue and loved the way the tent is setup. We received all the communication we need to access the venue and so thankful to Nelson who take care of us while we were there. He was very helpful and so kind. Will definitely be booking for our next event.
