Conway Hall was designed by Frederick Herbert Mansford, and built in 1929 at the height of the Art Deco movement in architecture.
The now Grade II listed building was named in hour of Moncure Daniel Conway, an anti-slavery advocate, outspoken supporter of free thought and biographer of Thomas Paine.
Conway moved to London in 1864 to eventually become minister for the Conway Hall Ethical Society (thought to be the oldest surviving freethought organisation in the world, and the only remaining ethical society in the United Kingdom). Conway Hall has been home to the society since its erection in 1929.
The main auditorium can hold up to 400 people and is considered a world class concert venue – concerts have remained a regular occurrence since its doors opened.
We chose Conway Hall to host Silicon Beached because we knew what a fantastic venue it was. After having attended several events including Matt Locke’s The Story, it seemed like the perfect venue to bring Silicon Beach inland.
We’re really pleased to be hosting the second Silicon Beached event at Conway Hall, and look forward to seeing you there.
