St Giles' as a Venue
St Giles' has the facilities to put on large events in the heart of Cambridge at minimum cost. We have a license for the performance of certain music and there is a new data projector and screen available.

It seats up to 200 people (but was designed for several hundred more) and has disabled access. In the past the building has hosted concerts, exhibitions, lectures, art installations and much more. There is also a beautiful garden.

If you have an event you would like to put on at St Giles', please contact us at info@fosgc.org
