News New venue Exhibition to open in West London

The team behind Printworks hope to open the new venue by the end of 2019.

A new venue called Exhibition London is set to open in the capital before the end of the year.

The team behind Printworks, Broadwick Live, have acquired the Grade II listed Dimco East building completed in 1899.

The two-floor venue is set to have a capacity of 3,000, spread across multiple rooms.

Bradley Thompson, MD of Broadwick Live & Venues, says: “Exhibition represents an important moment in the evolution of Westfield London, creating a unique entertainment hub and enhancing the area’s cultural kudos. It will attract and serve not only the local community, but the ever-increasing number of people who rightly view White City as one of the most exciting growth places in the capital. The location is perfect and the building itself is incredible. We are committed to respecting its past and investing in its future; offering fantastic, contemporary experiences against a stunning Victorian backdrop.”

Amy Lamé, London’s Night Czar, adds: “London’s night-time culture is the most diverse in the world and our night-time economy is growing faster than the wider economy. The great range of entertainment venues in the capital play a vital role in this vibrant nightlife, so I’m delighted to see this historic location turned into a brand new venue for arts, music and cultural events.”
