Printworks London

Finally, after a destructive few years, there’s some encouraging news for London’s party people. London has a huge new 5,000-capacity music and culture space. The Printworks is a few minutes’ walk from Canada Water station. It’s essentially a massive industrial complex that used to be where newspapers including the Daily Mail were printed. But don’t let that put you off. Since the presses stopped rolling in 2013, the complex has lain pretty much dormant, save for a Secret Cinema event. The new team –who include LWE (London Warehouse Events) and Broadwick Live – have deliberately left the space as raw as possible. Massive bits of machinery remain, and a roll of print paper from the factory’s last run still sits in one of the presses. There are six event spaces in total, which will play host to all manner of cross-cultural activity from art shows, classical concerts, dining events and gigs. But the main focus for clubbers will be on one particular long, narrow room – the chamber for the presses –which will act as the main room for DJ events.
