The North London Reform Synagogue was the ideal venue for my husband’s surprise 65th birthday party. We are keen dancers and so the hard floor of the Kiddush Hall was perfect for our needs. We had easy access to set up in the afternoon with help, far above and beyond, from the Chairman of the synagogue, Richard Woolf. We arranged the hall with five tables of 10 with extra seating around the edges of the hall to accommodate 70 guests in total. There was plenty of space for a buffet table, bar and dance floor, which was packed all night! The sound system was excellent which meant that we could plug in laptop, ipad and ‘phones for our music and so we did not need a DJ.
We hired three waitresses and the venue hire included use of the kitchen, all the crockery, cutlery and glassware.
I would thoroughly recommend this venue for your simcha and have to say that liaising with Synagogue Manager, Denise Bonham, leading up to our party was a joy which eliminated any headaches or anxieties in organising such an event.
