The 19th century Norman Style Welsh Chapel was built in 1888 by James Cubitt. The Grade II listed former Presbyterian church is composed of a galleried central space with an umbrella dome, a large basement, and attached manse.

After many years at the heart of the London Welsh community, the chapel closed for worship in 1982. It was transformed into one of London’s most infamous and hedonistic nightclubs, the Limelight, in 1985. In 2003 the building became a Walkabout pub and following its closure in 2010, was subsequently squatted. In 2012 the long-neglected building was rescued by a philanthropist.

Stone Nest will restore the building to its former beauty and transform it into a flexible performance space.
