The Space x

Conway Hall opened in 1929 and named in honour of Moncure Daniel Conway, anti-slavery advocate, outspoken supporter of free thought and biographer of Thomas Paine.

The venue is Grade 2 listed and offers hirers various event spaces, especially the Main Hall with its highly-regarded acoustics. The venue is unique for providing a central London location and a building with character, steeped in history, combined with cutting-edge AV facilities.

Owned by Conway Hall Ethical Society, a charity, the building is famous for being the birthplace of humanism, as well as hosting the longest run of classical concerts in the UK (which started in 1880 at the Society’s previous site), jazz concerts in the 1930s, a rare UK appearance from Muddy Waters and gigs by Crass and The Cure in 1970s, as well as many other concerts, including James Blake and La Roux, and events of all kinds since.

Today, Conway Hall is a popular, accessible, venue for location filming, conferences, presentations, concerts, talks, fashion shows, awards ceremonies and brand activations.

Previous clients include: BBC • Yamaha • Netflix • Evening Standard  • Snowline Media  • Ted Baker Penguin Books • Bloomsbury Festival • Guardian Live • Tate • EMAP
