Union ChapelThis Grade II listed building just south of Highbury Corner functions not only as a place of worship, it is also one of London's most unique and enchanting live music venues with a diverse and enticing list of upcoming events. There's something quite magical about this place and you will be hard pushed to find a more memorable location to listen to live music in London. The Chapel has seen over a century's worth of visitors come through its doors and has welcomed artists such as Bjork, Tori Amos and Fionn Regan to the stage in recent years. Performers are framed by the stained glass window and the space is lit with the warm glow of church candles. A fully licensed bar is open on show nights, and a kiosk in the Chapel provides visitors with hot chocolates and snacks to keep hands warm in those chilly winter months. Apart from providing Islington with lots of fine entertainment the tireless Union Chapel volunteers also run a vital support service for local people facing homelessness and crisis, with a drop-in session on Sundays where visitors can receive a hot meal, a shower and some advice. Parts of this large rambling complex are also available for hire, so well worth considering if you're after something special for a private party, conference or festival.
