About Us

The Forge is an award-winning venue, home to London’s most diverse musical talent. Its amazingly flexible building is reflected in the great breadth of the programme, which ranges from high-class concerts mid-week to pulsating live music club nights at the weekend.

The Forge is a wonderfully intimate venue, specially designed with natural acoustics for live music, making it the perfect space for concerts, rehearsals, recordings and other arts-based activities. Its beautiful décor also makes it a fantastic venue to hire for parties, functions, wedding receptions and business events.

The Forge also hosts a stylish bar which creates superb cocktails (ask about our cocktail masterclasses), and stocks an array of spirits, wines and beers. The upstairs Foundry Room is an ideal location for private parties, informal workshops and presentations or just a relaxed drink in the evening.

The building has been designed where possible with environmental issues in mind and includes features such as solar panels and natural ventilation systems. The Forge is connected to the downstairs bar by a beautiful double-height glazed courtyard. Within the courtyard is the building’s central focus: a stunning 6.5 metre high ‘living wall’ of plants designed by Katharine Bradburn – the perfect inside-outside space.

The Forge is a not-for-profit organisation and was opened in 2009 by musicians Adam and Charlotte Caird.
