If your event involves a performance, it goes without saying that you need a stage. You’ve probably spent time and money getting the entertainment just right, and a party venue hire with a stage is the very best way to showcase it. So, if you’re looking for a venue to hire in London, we’re here to help. Here at HeadBox we like to think we know a thing or two about amazing venues – it’s what we do best! So, to get you started we’ve picked some of our favourite HeadBox Spaces that are perfect for parties with performances.


The Green Room, Century Club

Century Club is one of our favourite London venues – and there are so many reasons why. Firstly it has got a certain understated exclusivity. It is a members club after all, and that’s one of the things that makes it all the more attractive to host an event here. You’re allowed behind the discreet door, member or not, for one night and one night only. This is a party venue that isn’t showy, but definitely is impressive. The Green Room is an intimate space, a small venue with a stage, perfect for live music and sure to create a real atmosphere.

The Dark Arch, The Brewhouse London

Dark Arch, The Brewhouse

The Brewhouse is a totally unique party venue to hire in the heart of creative East London. This Space is the events venue of the well-known London Fields Brewery – and, as the name suggests, it is just moments away from London Fields and has great beer on tap. The Space itself is under the railway arches and, as such, has a natural atmosphere for bringing together a big group of people for a party or event!

The Comedy Store

The Comedy Store London

If you’re looking for a venue with a stage to hire in London with a difference, let us point you in the direction of the Comedy Store… This venue is an institution and is legendary on the comedy scene, having been around for many years and played host to some of the biggest names. Conveniently, it’s also right in the middle of Soho too, easy to get to and in the heart of the city, neighbouring bars, restaurants and shops. And, given the events it hosts, as a stage venue it’s perfectly set up for performances. Get inspired and get creative in this one-of-a-kind Space!

The Other Place, The Albany

The Other Place, The Albany

Keeping it low-key is this laid-back pub venue in London. It has an enviable location just a hop and a skip away from Regent’s Park. The beauty of this Space is that, being a pub, it has everything you expect from a party venue to hire, including its own private bar, but it also has its own stage space too. If you’re looking to keep things relaxed this is a great choice of Space for a private party.

The Islington Metal Works

This venue has plenty of history and character, all spread across a vast three floors, making it big enough for any kind of party or event. This building used to be used to stable the horses that pulled the trams for London Transport, before being converted into a metal works in 1925 (hence the name). There is a restaurant space, a club area and a courtyard, making this one of the ultimate private party venues. And the modular staging available is a flexible and versatile way of setting the place up for performances too.


So – there they are. We’ve tried to give you a range of venues to show you that a ‘stage venue’ doesn’t always have to be on a huge scale. There are pubs with stages, bars with stages, clubs with stages, as well as the bigger venues, if that’s what you’re looking for. And if you need the event space to also be an incredible private party venue hire too, well, there’s no need to compromise on that either. With all the amazing venues in London you can have it all!
