highate talk 1

Join us to discover the history of three local venues: Lauderdale House, Jacksons Lane and Upstairs at the Gatehouse

Speakers from three of Highgate's key entertainment venues join us for a special Heritage Weekend talk! With each building facing uncertain futures at one stage or another, this talk will provide a fascinating insight into the transformations and challenges involved in converting each into the venues we know today.

We will hear from Nick Peacey, one of the driving forces behind Lauderdale House's conversion to an Arts and Cultural Centre, alongside John Plews - long time owener of the award-winning Upstairs at the Gatehouse theatre. Finally, we will be hearing from the team at Jacksons Lane and their amazing journey from derelict church to thriving community venue!
