All Saints - Portsmouth concert venue

About All Saints Church Portsmouth

Built in 1828, the Church originally comprised just the Nave. Designed by architect Thomas Ellis Owen, the church cost £13000. In 1877, the Chancel was added, and despite damage sustained in the second World War, the Church is in beautiful condition.

The body of the Church has been shortened so that there is a large meeting area with refreshment facilities near the door, and the Church itself is quiet and surprisingly intimate for such a large building.


The Church has a ramp for wheelchairs at the entrance, and has no steps inside. With a capacity of two hundred, the acoustic is superb for classical guitar.

Travel information

Situated close to the shopping centre in Portsmouth, the Church is well-served :
