Islington Assembly Hall
From folk and dance to rock and soul, there is something for every musical taste at Islington Assembly Hall. First opened in 1930, the venue hosted a range of dances and variety shows, as well as being used by local groups for presentations and weddings. It was closed in 1980, and Islington Museum was housed in the foyer until 2009.
Islington Assembly Hall was fully reopened in March 2010, and has since played host to a wide range of bands and artists, including Adam Ant, Thurston Moore, Eliza Doolitte and – perhaps most famously – The Foo Fighters. Find out more
