The HMV Forum


Europe, United Kingdom, London

The London Forum is a well-known venue for concerts in Kentish Town, London, United Kingdom owned by the MAMA Group. The venue was built in 1934 and was originally used as an art deco cinema. After the closure of the cinema, The Town & Country Club was established on the site as a new music venue. This was bought by Mean Fiddler in 1993 and renamed The London Forum. In 2007, MAMA Group purchased the Forum from Mean Fiddler and spent £1.5 million refurbishing it. It now boasts a fully seated option as well as a new PA and light system. The refurbishment also created a new bar and increased the capacity from 2100 to 2350.
