If you would like to hold your Bat Mitzvah in a little slice of London’s history then Bush Hall would make an excellent choice of venue.

There is an onsite events team to help everything run without a hitch, and plenty of options when it comes to organising catering and equipment hire, ensuring that everything is taken care of in-house and with as little stress as possible. It’s easily reached from across the city, with Shepherd’s Bush station a mere 5 minute walk away.
