Bookings: Hire our Spaces

bunting-squareAt T&T we have two venues: The Old Mortuary, and T&T2.

Built in 1860, The Old Mortuary has been a thriving centre for T&T’s local activities since 1980. It is situated in the heart of old Rotherhithe village, five minutes walk from Bermondsey, Canada Water (Jubilee Line) and Rotherhithe (Overground) tube stations. The single story, fully accessible building has its own garden, adjacent to the tranquil oasis of St Mary’s Park. The building is fully secure and there is also cycle parking and a small car park. The Old Mortuary is available for hire for community activities, workshops, training, and events. It is also available for private hire for parties, weddings, birthdays, etc.

We now have a second venue, T&T2, based in the busy Surrey Quays Shopping Centre, with a weekly footfall of around 20,000 people. T&T2 is available for hire for community activities, workshops, training, and events. (Please note, however, that it is not available for private parties etc.)

Hire at T&T2

T&T2 is available for bookings from July 2017, for a wide range of events and community activities, for the public, private, and voluntary sector. Full details can be found on our T&T2 page.
