Venue Hire

The Excelsior Academy is a large site in Dalston, Hackney, conveniently located within a short walk of Dalston Junction, Dalston Kingsland, Hackney Downs, and Hackney Central stations.

Built in 2006, the academy is an incredibly flexible venue that has often been used as both a filming location and a venue for conferences and functions. It is available for hire outside of normal academy hours.

It is a modern building flooded with natural light, comprising classrooms, science labs, an auditorium with PA system, a refectory, a library, outdoor patio, sixth form building with a cafe, and car parking facilities.

The auditorium, with seating for up to 250 people, has a stage and pull-down screen and projector.

With a car park and fully functional kitchen, the academy is perfect for large functions, including weddings, parties, wakes, screenings or meetings. We can also accommodate filming and location hire requests.

Please note, the academy does not align itself with any political or religious organisations and, therefore, will not hire its facilities out for any event deemed to have the potential to bring the academy into disrepute.
