Weddings & Functions

The entire 115-year history of Jacksons Lane’s building shines through the windows of Studio 1, where its history as the former Highgate Weslyan Church will add a sense of occasion to your special day.

  • High ceilings and original arch windows create a special atmosphere
  • Large room suitable for large events
  • New lift provides step-free access for wheelchair users

At over 29 metres long, Studio 1 has more than enough room for 120 guests, providing ample opportunity for your party to sit, eat, drink and dance together.

A new wheelchair-accessible lift and mezzanine level ensure that Studio 1 is easily accessible from the ground floor enables easy access to the bar and toilet for all of your guests.

We are so grateful we had our wedding reception at Jackson’s Lane. It’s uniquely wonderful due to the brilliant windows and beams, and the pontoon lights added a sense of magic and warmth to the room, creating the perfect ambience and setting for our special day. We constantly had guests coming to tell us how special it looked, although we barely needed to add our own decorations as it’s such a beautiful space. Thank you to the fantastic team who worked so closely with us to bring everything to life!

Will you hold a date for me?

Absolutely! – During the booking process we are more than happy to pencil your booking into our calendar for safe keeping.

We will hold the booking for you unless we get additional bookings for the space during this time period. At which point we will get in contact with you first to ask you to confirm the booking with a hire agreement and 50% deposit or release the date.

What is the capacity of Studio 1?

The total capacity of Studio 1 is 120 people, this is set by our fire code and is non-negotiable. Given the size of Studio 1 there is plenty of space for 120 people to be seated and still leave enough space for a dance floor.

What are my options for catering?

Jacksons Lane has carefully selected a range of local caterers for weddings and events who will be able to meet a wide range of tastes and budgets. Options include canapes, bowl food, buffets, plated meals, afternoon tea and even barbecues. We’ve gone to great lengths to find the best caterers both in terms of quality and value.

These approved caterers have been vetted by our team, know the venue well and can provide an excellent service, for these reasons we only allow approved caterers to operate at Jacksons Lane.

Are all tables, and chairs included in the fee?

Our standard event tables and chairs are included in the package fee.

If you are looking for some more bespoke furniture then we are able to help you in sourcing that from a hires company that we work closely with.

How much is the additional charge for the technical team to provide lighting and technical support?

For dramatic lighting of the archways and windows in Studio 1, let our trained Theatre Lighting team make your event magical. For a 1 hour consultation with our Technical Manager and the setup and pack down of our lighting equipment there is an additional charge of £200 (+VAT)

Can we drop off equipment before the day or have a trial-run setting up?

You are welcome to drop off equipment and decorations the day before which can be stored in the meeting room.

A trial set up of equipment can be arranged depending on availability at the time of your event.

Are there any specific rules about use of Studio 1?

We do not allow stiletto heels in Studio 1 as they damage the floor or the use of helium balloons due to the high vaulted ceilings.
