We are proud to partner with Ticketmaster and their mission to support local venues. It is an exciting step on our continued journey of being a ‘Cathedral of Creativity’”.

Since its restoration and reopening in 2021, Hackney Church has become a cultural hub for the arts in East London. The 1800-capacity venue, equipped with a state-of-the-art audio system, has hosted artists like Ed Sheeran, Sampha, Biffy Clyro and Joy Crookes. Both Ticketmaster and Hackney Church share a commitment to supporting local talent and work with the Music Venue Trust.

Hackney Church, part of the SAINT church community, provides support to East London through its charity, Lighthouse. All profits from venue hire support these essential programmes. Ticketmaster is proud to be part of this mission.
