The third facility run by VenueLabs is the highly impressive Printworks London, formerly the largest printing factory in Europe.
Printworks London (formerly Harmsworth Quays) was established in the Docklands in 1989 as western Europe’s largest print facility, and for 24 years The Evening Standard, The Daily Mail and Metro newspapers rolled off its presses. This unique site has now embraced a new lease of life, in which the former factory’s warehouses and magnificent Press Halls have been revived as ground-breaking, multi-purpose event spaces. Printworks London comprises 6-acres of private, gated land, with seven event spaces arranged over multiple levels with a maze of corridors and office space. The venue offers over 10,600 sq. m of versatile, industrial event space with a capacity of 6,000 and a 2 am licence on weekends.
A further 998 sq.m of outdoor space is also available, as well as parking for crew and production vehicles. The site offers producers, agencies and brands masses of creative, flexible and inspiring infrastructure. Located in Canada Water, it offers transport links from the City, central London and Canary Wharf. Described by Time Out as one of the city’s most vibrant, post-industrial venues, Printworks is the ultimate blank canvas for conferences, exhibitions, experiential events, concerts, product launches and filming. In 2018 Printworks London hosted 111 events and worked with brands such as Nike, Adidas, We Work, H&M x Moschino, QuickBooks and Mercedes to name but a few.
