Following its successful inaugural year Printworks London has announced plans to launch a new live room within the venue, which has a capacity of 3000 people.

Opening on March 23, the new room within the venue will host high-profile artists, whilst retaining the “unique electronic space it has become famous for”.

Printworks is also expanding on its programme to embrace arts and culture, kicking off the focus with a year long residency from YOUTH CLUB Archive, which will be allowing access to its tens of thousands of youth subculture images from the past four decades for the first time. The arts and culture programming will be overseen by Tamsin Ace, head of festival programming at London’s Southbank Centre.

Bradley Thompson, managing director of Broadwick Live, commented: “We feel hugely privileged to have helped breathe life back into this remarkable landmark since it opened its doors as a venue in 2017. It was always our ambition for Printworks to lead the way not just in era defining electronic music events, but across all arts.

“At Printworks, we truly believe that we have one of the most incredible venues there is today, and we’re absolutely committed to giving people unparalleled production, programming and experiences throughout the cultural spectrum.”

Ace added: “I’m excited to be part of the team creating a new arts and culture programme for Printworks. With such a different space to play with, Printworks offers the opportunity for artists to create something truly unique.”
