islington assembly hall

Islington Assembly Hall is a stunning venue in the heart of Islington, north London.

The Grade II listed building first opened in 1930 and today retains much of its art deco interior and original architectural detail, including its magnificent stage.

Since being extensively refurbished in 2010 by Islington Council, it has become one of the capital’s most exciting live music venues, with a host of big names – as well as up-and-coming artists – playing sell-out shows.


  • By Tube: Highbury and Islington Station (Victoria and Overground Lines) is a five-minute walk away. Angel Station (Northern Line) is less than a 15-minute walk away.
  • By train: Highbury and Islington Station and Essex Road (First Capital Connect services) are both a five-minute walk away. 
  • By bus: Buses 4, 19, 30 and 43 stop right outside the venue at the ‘Islington Town Hall’ bus stop. Other buses serving Essex Road and Angel stop a short walk away.
