S Paul's is an excellent venue for concerts. Seating up to 300 people, the main body of the church is set back the length of the chancel from any passing noise. In addition, the long cloister protects the entrance from street sounds. There is the added advantage of the church being warm in winter.
For smaller concerts and lectures, the elegant Fishermen's Vestry has good acoustics and sits about 40 people comfortably.
The spacious Narthex is sometimes used for audiences of about 80.
