Our New Year sketching trip to Union Chapel is Wednesday 21 January

©Heather James
We will be starting our year of sketching outings with a visit to Union Chapel, Compton Terrace London N1 2XD. The church is open for many and varied activities on Wednesdays and we have been invited to arrive at 10am and can continue with our work until 1pm. Anyone who wants to stay after that time is welcome although three hours is often plenty of time to complete work that has been begun.

The pews, being made of wood, can be a bit uncomfortable after a while so you might want to bring a cushion with you. Likewise, although there are many cafés and restaurants very close to Union Chapel you may also want to bring your lunch with you to avoid wasting drawing time.

On this occasion there will be an organ recital beginning at 11am so we will be able to enjoy listening to the chapel's famous Henry Willis organ while we work. Please come to the front of the chapel in Compton Terrace where the front doors will be open and we look forward to seeing you. Highbury & Islington station is just a few minutes walk away and the Angel station is a short bus ride away on Upper Street. Many bus routes also pass the chapel.
