St Luke’s Bombed Out Church

The Bombed Out Church is a Grade II listed managed ruin, memorial to the casualties of war, cultural venue, and space for heritage and community engagement. Suffering catastrophic damage during the May Blitz of 1941, St Luke’s lay disused for many years before being transformed by a series of cultural events in the early 2000s, reopening the space to the public.

An established venue for theatre, dance, classical and world music, visual art, cinema, and spoken word, as well as alternative and participatory forms of work, the site now stands as a testament to community spirit and the power of the arts to affect change.
