Events

Unless stated otherwise, events run from 10.30 am to 3.30 pm at the Congregational Chapel, Kelly Street, Kentish Town, NW1 8PH.

The pedestrian entrance is, through the gates, between 34 & 36 Kelly Street and at the rear of the building on Church Avenue (door on the left at the end of the alleyway) where there is limited car parking. Church Avenue is off Kentish Town Road near the corner with Prince of Wales Road.

Nearest Tube is Kentish Town on the Northern Line, turn left out of the Station and it’s a 5min walk along the High St.

There is also an Overground Station nearby, Kentish Town West less than 5min.

Venue is well served by several London Bus routes, 46, 134, 214, 393, C2.

The lively High St has many cafes and food shops but you are welcome to bring food in to the venue for your lunch. Teas & Coffee are available for a small donation.

Venue is Fully Accessible with ramps at both entrances with a lift and an accessible toilet on the ground floor. Please be aware though, that unfortunately, there are no automatic doors to enter.

BOOKINGS

Due to oversubscription, we run a lottery system to allocate places, like a virtual hat we pull names out of!

Submission of interest DOES NOT guarantee a place. Complete the form ONCE for each participant.

If more than one submission is received, the latest one will be counted.

Please make a note of your selections.

If payment is not received after attempts to contact you, places will be given to those on the waiting list.

This system was introduced to accommodate as many people as possible and to reduce no shows, no notice given and non-payment.

Please contact Talitha Wachtelborn (email: t.wachtelborn@gmail.com) if you have any queries.
