Ever thought about hosting your Christmas party in a church?

Picture this…

Your guests will make their way up Bishopsgate to a venue so pronounced, you can’t miss it. You will be welcomed up the stone steps of the Church and into the striking Nave for an arrival reception. The scents of fresh pines from the Christmas tree combined with aromatic winter spices will welcome your guests into this amazing venue, Spitalfields Venue.

Whilst you admire the intricate architecture in awe, why not talk to us about having a local historian present to tell you a bit of history around the venue. The building was built over 300 years ago and there are definitely some stories to tell!
Following a delicious seasonal banquet we will then invite guests downstairs into the recently refurbished Crypt to reveal the evening’s entertainment (and if you have included one of the local historians, you will know some fascinating previous uses of this space!) We will organise the DJ, the dance floor and the bar and all you have to worry about is having a good time!


In December 2017 we served 3,963 cups of mulled wine, we made 620 gingerbread men (plus 2 gingerbread houses), served 1109 Christmas dinners and this year it’s no different.

The hustle and bustle around CCSpits at Christmas is what adds to its festive charm. For every night there’s not a Christmas party, there will be a carol service echoing through the ornate arches. Whilst we close the doors to our last party on the 23rdDecember, the Church is gearing up for their Christmas Eve service and the rest that follow. For us – the festivities don’t stop until the final pines drop off the tree in early January when it’s time to pack away the decorations for another year.

With dates selling out fast, make sure you don’t miss out on this traditional Christmas experience at our venue of the month: Spitalfields Venue and get in touch now to secure your Christmas Party space.

Christmas at Spitalfields Venue.
