The American International Church is a modern venue situated in the West End at the intersection of some of London’s most popular and famous locales. With a history on Tottenham Court Road going back some 260 years, the current building has been a focus of London’s vibrant international communities since being rebuilt in 1957.
A versatile and contemporary space, the American International Church is frequently used by major entertainment organisations including theatre, opera, television and film companies for auditions and rehearsals. With spaces ranging in seating capacity from 10 to 300, it is a perfect venue for conferences, lectures and examinations; consultations and training sessions and group workouts; filming, recording and wardrobe fittings; and much more.
