Printworks, a new 5,000 capacity venue for London, to open in 2017
Stemming the tide of music venue closures in the capital, a new, multipurpose events space will open in Canada Water in early 2017.
Printworks is a brand new venture run by venue managaement specialists The Vibration Group, alongside London clubbing giants LWE and Broadwick Live, the team behind Field Day, Snowbombing and Festival No. 6. The site is a former printing facility (churning out copies of the Metro and Evening Standard in its former life) and has previously been the setting for Secret Cinema's Star Wars and 28 Days Later events. As Printworks, it will run its own in-house music programme as well as hosting theatre, arts, film, dance and food events, with a common theme of "immersiveness" throughout. The first details of their music-focussed series will be announced on Thursday, 1st December.
Gareth Cooper, CEO of Broadwick Live, says:
"We're extremely proud and excited to be part of the team launching Printworks London, a new innovative concept that we hope will become one of the most sought after venues in London. A space that crosses so many boundaries, Printworks London will host an eclectic mix of entertainment from the best underground electronic music to immersive theatre experiences. Our dream is to add another notch to London's world class entertainment scene, and we can't wait to get started."
