New 5,000 Capacity Venue Launches In London



Printworks London, set to be a ground-breaking new multipurpose, experimental venue in the UK, launches in Canada Water. Located within the former printing facility for the Metro and Evening Standard newspapers, the staggering 5,000 capacity licensed venue set within a 16-acre site in London’s Docklands.

Supporting London’s world renowned cultural industries, Printworks will house a vibrant spectrum of events across arts, culture, fashion, music, film, food, immersive theatre, dance and more, as well as their first in-house music events series announced on Thursday 1st December 2016.


We took a trip around this dramatic industrial setting on Friday and it comprises of six vastly diverse events spaces, arranged over multiple levels, with a labyrinth of interconnecting corridors and rooms. Benefiting from two fully sound-proofed ‘Press Halls’, meticulous thought has been invested into every aspect of this project to preserve the venue’s incredible heritage, including many of the former printing factories original features left on display and incorporated into the story of Printworks’ next chapter.

Operated by The Vibration Group, who will be working with LWE (who run events at Tobacco Dock & Junction 2 Festival to name but a few) and Broadwick Live (They run Snowbombing, Festival No 6 to name but a few) to deliver an exciting and innovative programme of cultural, ticketed events as well as providing community rehearsal rooms to ensure the space is accessible and beneficial to local collectives and creative incentives of any scale at this interim project.

Debut music event series announced on Thursday 1st December 2016.
