Sancho Room

Sancho Room

Capacity: 12-20 

A bright, quirky room on the third floor.

Hiring the Sancho Room supports activities such as our Shen Chi Do martial arts classes.

The Sancho room is a bright, eaved room on the third floor of the Abbey Centre, with three windows letting in the sunlight. This room is perfect for meetings and training sessions.

A built-in bonus is that your room hire directly supports our dynamic community centre, bringing together and providing opportunities for local children, families and older people from our diverse neighbourhood.

Named after Ignatius Sancho, an influential immigrant from Africa, whose large body of letters inspired abolitionists. A musician and composer, he also appeared on stage, and in later life established himself as a grocer in King Charles Street, just a short walk from The Abbey Centre.
