The CollegeFormerly home to Central Saint Martins and the Cochrane Theatre before the famous fashion college moved to a new home in King's Cross in 2011, The College is a large site with period Victorian halls and interconnecting rooms available to hire. The venue hosted designjunction in 2015 when 180 cutting-edge brands temporarily set up shop and showcase their latest products. In October 2018 it provides a second site for The Other Art Fair, which marks its 30th edition with this strand wholly dedicated to showcasing women artists.
