Facilities and Access

Opening hours

If you’d like to come and have a look around this ancient building while there are no events taking place, come along to one of our Open Mornings, held generally on the second Saturday of each month. Check our What’s On page for future dates.

Please get in touch by emailing info@theoldchurch.org.uk if you you would like to visit on another date – we will do our best to accommodate you.

As well as being an arts and performance venue, the building remains a consecrated church. Services take place at The Old Church at 08.15 (matins) and 09.30 (all ages) every Sunday, and 18.30 (evensong) on the first Sunday of the month.

Access

We have completely flat access from the pavement. Wheelchairs and buggies should use the entrance on the right (as you look at our two entrances from the street). There are two small steps if you use the entrance on the left.

Space is available for wheelchair users. No advance booking is required.

There is no on-site parking but there are plenty of metered bays nearby.

Bikes are not allowed inside the building. There is plenty of railing space outside.

Facilities

We have two clean, modern toilets – one fully wheelchair accessible, also containing baby changing facilities.

Food and drink

We sell wine, beer, lager and soft drinks at concerts and public events. The bar is currently cash only.

Drinking water is always freely available.

Events

Concert and public events are run by clearly identified, friendly volunteers – willing to help.

The Old Church is a very old building with some uneven flooring. Parents should keep an eye on small children at all times. The Old Church does not have specific seating for very small children.

It can get a bit chilly during the winter, but it is cool and refreshing on hot days.

Families

We are delighted to welcome families to The Old Church. There is space to park buggies at events; baby changing facilities are available in the wheelchair accessible toilet; and tap water is available from the bar.
