  • Visitor Information

Situated just off Brick Lane, this space is in the hot spot of the cool side of London within their rights, as their venue has regularly been used in TV shoots and music videos. MTV, BBC Newsnight and The Culture Show have all used this affordable space for their work. The venue was set up in 2006 and is targeted for people to use working in the creative industries - performance based, music, fashion or visual arts. It is close to Liverpool Street station and for its ease to reach it can also add casting and rehearsal space to its long list of uses.
