The Forge is an architecturally-designed award-winning venue situated in the heart of Camden Town in North London. The venue is not only an inspirational setting for musical performances for up to 300 people standing / 150 seated, it is also perfect for conferences, seminars, meetings and presentations as well as parties, weddings and other social events.
Our building consists of the Main Space, the Glazed Courtyard, the Main Bar & the upstairs Foundry Room. These are flexible spaces which can be hired out individually or together, allowing us to cater for all your event needs.
The Main Space is an acoustically designed venue perfect for concerts, screenings, recordings, rehearsals and presentations, seating up to 100 people theatre style.
The Glazed Courtyard is located in the centre of the building and is separated from the Main Space by huge acoustic doors so this space can either serve as a foyer / reception area for the Main Space or the acoustic doors can be opened to create a single larger space. The Courtyard is dominated by an enormous living wall of plants that creates a stunning centrepiece for the building.
The Foundry Room is a beautiful informal function room which can host up to 40 people seated or 80 standing. It is ideal for workshops and more informal presentations and is also great for any kind of party.
The Forge is a sustainable building and has full disabled access. The capacity of the full venue is 300.
