The Round Church provides a compelling concert space. From its dramatic ambience and intimate setting to its striking architecture and naturally impressive acoustics, the building has facilitated the making of beautiful music for centuries. We welcome the opportunity to continue this tradition, and hope you will enquire about using the Round Church for your next concert, performance or theatrical production.
‘We wanted to film a promotional video for our local company in iconic buildings in Cambridge. The Round Church is a building full of history, and is well known by locals and visitors alike. For us, that weight of history and the environment within its walls were the deciding factors in our choice to film here, and the director was extremely pleased with the space. The Round Church is indeed a location where a multitude of events can be held, and its walls provide not only a beautiful aesthetic, but are also full of history and atmosphere.’ – Luis, Nanna Mexico
Whether you’re organising a seminar, planning a conference, or running a workshop, the Round Church may be just the sort of interesting space you’re searching for. While it may not offer state-of-the-art technological capabilities, we believe it more than makes up for it in character!
‘The Christian Medical Fellowship takes about 20 international students from emerging national movements to Cambridge each year. Christian Heritage provides an outstanding day package, with a morning lecture on the sacred/secular divide, or the significance of worldviews. An afternoon walking tour then illustrates how Christians have shaped Western civilization for the public good. It is a great encouragement for us to boldly imitate the heroes of faith in our own generation. There is nothing quite like it. Highly recommended!’ – Dr Alex Bunn, Associate Head CMF Student Ministries
‘From first contact to the performance itself, hire and use of the stunning Round Church could not have been smoother. Our point of contact was very flexible despite changes to our performing circumstances (due to evolving Covid performing arts guidelines) and was always happy to show myself and others round the venue in the weeks leading up to the performance. Acoustically, our performance featured singers and a mixed chamber ensemble of orchestral instruments; the building proved to have a very forgiving acoustic and I’m sure it would suit all types of musical performance. As a student society, we are so grateful for the Round Church’s support in staging this project in the Covid climate.
The Round Church deserves to be used as much as possible as the country emerges from Covid. I could not recommend the venue, both for its architecture and for ease of booking logistics, more highly’
