Space Hire at Lift


We expect that some customers will have questions over their bookings in the coming days and weeks. We are offering to transfer all deposits as a credit to a future date for those who may be considering cancelling their event. All you need to do is email stating you would like to postpone your event and make contact again when you wish to use this credit.

Lift is a stunning venue in Islington. The former Victorian school has been transformed into meeting and training rooms, halls, roof top terrace, dance studio, performance space and a gym. These are available for hire during the day, Tuesday and Thursday evenings and at the weekends.

Set over four floors, Lift is a modern and contemporary space in which to hold your meeting or event. There are rooms of all sizes with large windows giving a light and spacious ambiance.

A large reception hall makes for a lovely 'meet and greet' area for you to use.

Lift is located within a five minute walk of Angel underground station and the buzz of Upper Street. We have a private car park exclusively for the use of hirers and free cycle rack.

The building is fully accessible with a lift covering all floors.

Catering is supplied by Lift Kitchen, our in-house catering team. Lift Kitchen can also cater for external events.

The income received from venue hire is invested in services for young people in Islington.
