Situated in London's Canada Water, The Printworks has been transformed into a venue with capacity for 5,000 people across six event spaces. The spaces are located on multiple levels, and retain the original machinery, giving the venue a raw, industrial feel.

The Printworks will welcome a diverse range of events, from fashion, music and cultural events to food and drink festivals, product launches and filming. Operated by The Vibration Group, which has teamed up with Broadwick Live and London Warehouse Events (LWE), The Printworks will deliver a programme of ticketed events under an entertainment license.

Kicking off in February 2017, the new events space will host a ten-week-long series of electronic music events, aiming to showcase and support the city's music culture. 

The venue has already been used as an alternative catwalk for high-end clothing brand Mulberry during its London Fashion Week show, as well as a film set for the blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron. 

The venue will also be available as a community space, and will host rehearsals, as well as creative workshops.

Last month, Europe's largest escape-themed venue, Locked in a Room, came to ExCel London. Also in October, it was announced that Time Out plans to open a market-style venue in the second half of next year.
