About the venue

Wanstead URC has a most unique history. Built in the parish of St. Pancras and consecrated in 1861, the church had to be moved due to the great railway expansions. It was dismantled, transported, and rebuilt on the current site in 1867! Situated just off the Wanstead High Street, the church welcomes familes of Wanstead, Snaresbrook, Redbridge and surrounding areas to the plethora of activities central to a vibrant community's needs. Step out after a Bach to Baby concert, you will be in the centre of Wanstead Village - perfect for a stroll down or a relaxing lunch along the High Street.
