Bob On... London: Union Chapel, Upper Street

The Union Chapel is one of those treasures that exists in London, tucked away from the main entertainment hubs, but doing a great and diverse job.

As the name suggests,  it was a church, but was in danger of being demolished. Saved by local action, the Chapel was renovated and has become the home of a church, cafe, bar, performance venue, homeless charity and so much more.

But what you will see when you walk through the door is a stunningly beautiful building. And the acoustics are wonderful; it is no surprise so many musical acts choose to perform here.

The range of productions that run here are diverse: Bands, singers, film evenings, comedy gigs, recitals and yes, given it is still a working church, services.

There are free guided tours, daylight concerts and speakers, to crossword challenges! So truly something for everyone. And every penny you spend there helps the Union Chapel support those less well off.
