St Nicholas Main Hall - Bedhampton concert venue

About St Nicholas Church Centre Bedhampton

Particularly well-sited for visitors, this building is a short stroll from Bedhampton station, and close to the junction of the A3M and A27. There is a frequent bus service from Havant and Portsmouth.

The building is dual purpose - the Main Hall has an altar and sanctuary at one end and a stage at the other, so it's both 'Church' and 'Church Hall'.

The Main Hall seats 160 - a perfect size for everyone to see and hear! (There's also a smaller Hall for hire in the same building).

St Nicholas Bedhampton is one of two churches in Bedhampton Parish - the other, also a past hago venue, is St Thomas Church Bedhampton.


Although the Hall has level access for wheelchairs, there are currently no wheelchair-accessible toilets. (This page last updated 2016)

There is plenty of on-street parking as well as a small car-park. Audiences are asked to park so that residents' driveways are clear. Please don't park in the car-park of The Imperial Palace - it's not for Hall Hire users.

The Concerts we've held in aid of registered charities at St Nicholas Church Centre all enjoyed a concessionary Hall Hire rate - we are very grateful to the PCC of St Thomas & St Nicholas Church Bedhampton for making the hire cost less of a drain on our fund-raising.


Our MD's website includes a fascinating 1958 issue of the Parish Magazine "Community", which includes the building of St Nicholas Bedhampton.
