Welcome to Shaftesbury Hall

A community hall
in the heart
of Bowes Park

Covid-19 / Coronavirus Update

Given the current situation with COVID-19, we wanted to update all our hall users.


Shaftesbury Hall is currently out of use and, until government guidelines on social distancing are changed, we will not be taking bookings.

In the case of all current bookings, we will waive the usual cancellation fees. However, Shaftesbury Hall is a not for profit enterprise and any losses or shortfalls must be met by North London Samaritans, which is entirely dependent on its charitable fundraising activities. We would therefore ask that in the event that your cancelled use of the hall would have ordinarily attracted a fee you would consider donating some or all of that waived fee to North London Samaritans.
