The staff were incredibly helpful and welcoming from the very beginning; helping to set up and pack down and even offer to take on impromptu tasks like unloading equipment. The venue was just perfect for my event and the acoustic of the theatre was gorgeous. The piano was well maintained too. The staff ensured that the room was set up to my requirements.

Since we had a lot of equipment, the club room had to be hired which was rather a lot on top of the total cost but it was a gorgeous room so I can’t complain that much! It would have been nice to have a lift for carrying everything up the stairs.

Very nice looking theatre (good for an event for maximum 70 people I think), very helpful and friendly staff that followed us in everything. Venue has an inner courtyard that is perfect for smoking guests.

The theatre is accessible via stairs only. Disabled people have to be kept out. The piano is a fascinating Bechstein. Well kept but old. Could be a positive if you want to give an "historical reconstruction" feel (and it worked very well for our pianist programme), but far from a concert hall standard.

About October Gallery

October Gallery is a striking venue in central London with three outstanding spaces for hire:

Perfect for parties, book launches, workshops, meetings, music recitals, theatre performances and more.

Unique in their charm, all spaces benefit from natural light, fully integrated AV facilities and conserved period features of this 19th century Grade II listed building, steeped in history.

Based in the heart of Bloomsbury, the Gallery is served by excellent public transport connections, just a few minutes’ walk from Holborn and Russell Square London Underground Stations.

Founded in 1979, October Gallery has been instrumental in bringing to worldwide attention many of the world’s leading international artists, including El Anatsui, Rachid Koraïchi, and Romuald Hazoumè.

The Gallery promotes the Transvangarde, the very best in contemporary art from around the planet, as well as maintaining a cultural hub in central London for poets, writers, intellectuals and artists, and hosts talks, performances and seminars.
