Oval SpaceOval Space is a multi-use arts and events space with 6,000 square feet of space in Bethnal Green in East London with stunning views over the iconic Bethnal Green gas holders. The space first opened its doors to the public in April 2012 and has since been home to some legendary nights out including their 'on the terrace' Sunday series. It is also used as a shoot location, for product launches, corporate functions, live music and performance art. All the music and art programming is run in-house so there's a high level of quality control and appeal of the activities in the space. Visit the two spectacular outside terrace areas for al fresco cocktails, perfect for watching the sun go down over the gas works at the back.
