Magazine London has opened its doors with 3,205 square-metres of industrial-style space for up to 3,000 people.

The warehouse-form, steel structure also has a 7,000-capacity outdoor showground with views across the Thames towards Canary Wharf. It can host brand events, awards dinners, conferences, exhibitions, fashion, arts and cultural events. 

The venue was designed by architects at Nissen Richards Studio, whose portfolio includes Printworks London, National Waterways Museum in Gloucester and the British Museum’s Sir Joseph Hotung Gallery of China and South Asia. The property comes from a collaboration between Venue Lab, Vibration Design and Production, Moving Venue and Knight Dragon. 

Vibration Group strategy and creative director, Simeon Aldred, said: "Magazine London is set to become an integral part of the capital’s events landscape. 

"This is a huge milestone for the development of Greenwich Peninsula, and to have created a brand-new cultural venue here is crucial in adding to the cultural diversity of the area."  

It has already attracted high-profile, public and private events with 22 events confirmed between September 2019 and the end of the year. Upcoming events include Michael Bibi Presents Isolate, World Travel Market’s International Travel and Tourism Awards and Stylist Live Luxe.

The venue hosted Desperados’ ‘Epic House Party’ in September 2019 (see pictures above) which brought in 3,000 attendees.
