Printworks London

The Press Halls
The Press Halls are the jewel in Printworks’ crown, with 16-metre high ceilings and 3,328 square metres of original industrial space.

The former heart of the factory, the cathedral-like space was used to print newspapers 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Original industrial features, such as the giant printing presses, multiple mezzanine levels and soundproofed pods overlooking the space known as ‘quiet havens' provide an exceptional environment for live events.

The Press Halls comprise two main areas: The Main Hall and The Live Box, which can be combined or configured as separate spaces. An internationally acclaimed music space, the halls also offer a dynamic home for new culture such as exhibitions, conferences, brand activations, award ceremonies, festivals and fashion shows.

Once home to huge ink tanks supplying the printing presses, Inkwells is Printworks’ newest space. With colonnades of beaten concrete pillars, exposed pipework and low ceilings, Inkwells offers a stripped-back, intimate space that provides the perfect complement to the cavernous halls above.

Totalling 1,003 sq. metres of space and a maximum standing capacity of 700, Inkwells provides a unique environment for private parties, filming and music.

Publishing was referred to as ‘The Chapel’ in its factory days, named after the ‘quires’, or stacks of newspapers that were stacked there awaiting delivery.

The space retains its original machinery and pipework in the ceiling, providing the perfect industrial backdrop for events and activations. Defined by its striking blue and yellow steel structure, this unique space offers the ability to deliver small to large-scale productions, fantastic for filming and experiential events.

The Vanway once housed the final stage of the printing process, in which vans would collect newspapers hot-off-the-press for UK distribution.

Original features include the exposed, bright yellow steel frame and the large, industrial shutter doors that provide access to the outside space of the Yard. The Vanway is an excellent space for unique product launches and performances.
