Located in Margate, Kent, ARK - Cliftonville’s Cultural Space is a unique space perfect for hosting your wedding celebrations. Built-in 1929, the space was originally a Jewish Mosque and a thriving centre for the Jewish community in Margate. However, in 2020, the building was put up for auction. Four local residents set up fundraisers to protect this piece of the past and save the building from demolition. They were successful in their endeavour, and the beautiful building still stands today, and renovations continue to create a breathtaking cultural space. This vintage venue has so much potential for your wedding to be extraordinary.

Facilities and Capacity

The large open space consists of the original stained-glass windows, high ceilings, and a half-sphere altar area. With this blank canvas, you are free to let your imagination run wild and decorate the space as you wish, seeing your vision come to life. With the capacity to host 120 guests, your banquet will be one to remember.

Services Offered

The staff at ARK - Cliftonvilles Cultural Space are happy to arrange florals, catering, entertainment and everything else you may need to mark this special occasion. They are on hand to ensure a stress-free experience. Alternatively, you may rent the space and facilities and sort out the rest of the details yourself. The team is as flexible as you need it to be. The overall vision of this space is to provide a vibrant, accessible space for members of all cultures and communities to celebrate while also preserving an important piece of Jewish history. Booking this venue allows you to celebrate in a rare location but also help the local community and give back to the marginalized.
