The Space x

Big Penny Social in Blackhorse Lane incorporates the UK’s largest beer hall, flexible event space, and a huge sunny beer garden with a total capacity of over 1,400 people. We are an incredibly versatile space and are well suited to many event types, from conferences and exhibitions, to summer or Christmas parties and away days to filming, markets, pop-up shops, product launches, press launches, gigs, weddings and everything in between! We are a collaborative team here and work with each of our clients to create tailored and memorable events. 

Situated a 5 minute walk from Blackhorse Road Station on the Victoria line and Overground, Big Penny Social is easily reachable from central London. Not only are we just 20 minutes from Kings Cross, we are also one train from London Liverpool Street, which goes directly to nearby St James Street Station, passing through Bethnal Green and Hackney. We are also well connected by bus, being on the routes to Stratford, Wood Green and Chingford. 

We are also a fully accessible venue, with step free access across all three of our public spaces. We also have brilliant tech and AV equipment included within the hire of our spaces, from radio mics to our 16ft projector or LED screen.
