Barbauld Room at Newington Green Meeting House
About this space
The Barbauld Room is downstairs. It is named after Anna Laetitia Barbauld, the poet and slavery abolitionist, who was a member of our congregation and married to a former minister. It features tea and coffee points with a fridge and storage; a mirror wall; a television linked to the stage camera; and greater privacy than our other spaces.
It would suit a small book club or meeting; a small reception; a dance or meditation class; or a green room for events on stage in the Main Hall.
The Barbauld Room can accommodate a maximum of 20 people seated or 30 standing.
