Information for hirers
We are proud to host a wide range of concerts, festivals and events each year.
We can offer a large church with seating for up to 400 in normal times. (Covid restrictions mean that the current maximum audience is 120.)
We also have small kitchen facilities, a disabled toilet and access for wheelchairs. Further kitchen and toilet facilities are available at the adjacent Ambleside Parish Centre (APC). To book the APC, contact them through their website: http://www.amblesideparishcentre.org.uk/
Music, poetry, drama, courses, talks...
This year St Mary's will be used as a concert hall, opera venue and recording studio.
