The Old Congregation House

The Old Congregation House, built in 1320, is available for private hire for evening events. We are again allowing catered events to take place in the ground floor of the Old Congregation House after 6.30pm.  The café will be operated in line with our Covid risk assessment for evening events. In accordance with our current Covid risk assessment, we can now offer teas, coffees, light refreshments and sandwich lunches in the Old Library. 


The Old Congregation House (which operates as the Vaults and Garden Cafe during the day) is available for evening events from 7 - 10:30 pm and can accommodate 70 people (75 standing). This is a perfect venue for social gatherings. 

If you would like to hire this space, please contact the University Church directly on: or call 01865 279110.
