Space Hire at Lift

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.
