Ideal for daily and hourly venue hire, St Hilda’s East Community Centre is located 3 minutes walk from Shoreditch High Street, and just 15 minutes from Old Street and Liverpool Street stations. We are in the heart of Shoreditch, a diverse area with vibrant street art, multiple food, and retail venues just steps from our door along with the famous Brick Lane and buzzing Spitalfields market nearby.

We can accommodate groups from 2 to 150 people in our meeting and training spaces. We also regularly host parties, Mehndis and other community celebrations in our beautiful Middleton Hall.

We particularly welcome enquiries from other charities and community not-for-profits, who can benefit from our charitable discounts. Our venue comes equipped with high-speed fibre optic broadband (900MBs), concierge services, kitchens, break-out spaces and even a roof garden.

You can relax in the knowledge that 100% of all hire costs go towards supporting our 135 year old charity and community programmes.  

Please see our office spaces in our space hire section, which could also be used for short term venue hire, subject to availability.

Its lofty two storey high ceiling and natural daylight makes it a desirable and sought after venue for conferences, art exhibitions, receptions, birthday parties, Mehndis, weddings, theatrical rehearsals and fashion shows, plus almost any event that calls for a combination of capacity and elegance.

With folding walls that open up to the adjoining café to increase capacity, and kitchen area with serving hatch, Middleton Hall is located on the ground floor, providing easy access for loading.
