When is JW3 open for venue hire?
Monday-Wednesday: 10am-9:30pm (we close at 10pm)
Thursday-Sunday: 10am-10:30pm (we close at 11pm)
Can I hire a space on Shabbat?
Yes, but only if the event being held is Shabbat compliant. Children's parties cannot be held during Shabbat. Shabbat lasts from sunset of Friday until nightfall on Saturday.
How long before the building closes do events need to finish?
All events must finish 30 minutes before the building closes. The building closes at 10pm Monday-Wednesday, 11pm Thursday-Sunday. Due to licensing laws we are unable to extend these hours..
For how long can I hire a room?
We hire rooms on an hourly, half day and full day basis. You can also hire a room for a regular time and day, subject to availability.
Do you have different rates for charities?
Yes we have three different venue hire rates, for charities, private events and corporate events. Make sure that you let us know which event you are holding so you are quoted the correct rate.
What extra charges may I occur?
We may charge for set up and take down depending on the event.
We do not charge for the hire of AV and sound equipment, but it will be subject to availability.
For events taking place on Friday night (i.e. during Shabbat) there will be an extra charge for security.
What catering can we use for our event?
External licenced kosher caterers are welcome for all hires. For large events taking place in the Howard Hall we have a room which can be used as a field kitchen. For children's birthday parties food can be delivered from local licenced kosher caterers, including the birthday cake.
Is there parking available?
We have four blue badge spaces which will need to be booked in advance. Paid parking is available at the O2 Centre, 400m away. Free parking on Finchley Road from 7pm and adjacent side roads from 6:30pm Mondays to Saturdays and all day Sunday.
Suppliers can drop off and pick up from our Piazza with prior agreement.
Can my event be part of the JW3 programme?
On occasion, it may be possible. If you are interested in discussing whether your event could become part of the JW3 programme please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will JW3 promote my event?
No, we are not able to publicise venue hire events.
