When can we access the building?
Your caterer or event planner is welcome to begin their work anytime from 1.00pm for an evening function or from 7.00am for a lunchtime function. In all cases clearing up must be completed within one hour of the event ending. Earlier access is available by agreement and may incur a small charge.

What caterers can I use?
You may use any caterer who is approved by the London Beth Din. In practice this covers all Beth Din caterers and most Sephardi and Kedassia caterers. A complete up to date list is available on the United Synagogue Website.

What is the latest time my function can end?
We have a licence that requires any function to end and guests to have left by 11.30pm. Caterers may remain on site until 12 midnight to complete their clearing up.

Do I need to bring additional lighting?
Our modern recently refurbished Hall offers several lighting options including LED lighting with different colour options, uplighters and ambient lighting. Please feel free to speak to our facilities manager to discuss the wide range of options available. If you wish to enhance the facilities further by bringing in additional lighting, then this is perfectly acceptable.

I have several elderly or disabled guests, what facilities are available to them?
There is wheelchair access to the Hall and private toilet facilities in both the Gentleman’s and Ladies cloakrooms. Arrangements can be made to drop off/collect disabled visitors at the Synagogue entrance but this must be arranged in advance. We regret cars/vans cannot remain on site.

Can I use my own supplier for flowers, music, decorations etc.?
Yes, we do not have any preferred contractors. However, we will want to be satisfied that any company working in the building complies with all relevant Health & Safety requirements and will ask them to complete risk assessments, provide copies of their insurance cover and an agreement to confirm they understand our guidelines for any modifications they may wish to make to the Hall for your function.

Can I park on site?
Unfortunately no, but there is plenty of on-street parking.
