St John at Hackney (SAINT) are delighted to have been awarded a Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) National Award recognizing the restoration of their building. Many thanks to everyone who has been involved in championing this work – the DAC, Chancellor and everyone who walked through the project from beginning to end.
This £6 million project has turned this iconic building into a world class music and events venue, with thanks to lottery funding. The space is designed to be a cathedral of creativity for church, music and unique experiences. St John at Hackney is one of the largest venues in East London.
