Launching The Beams

On 5 July we launched The Beams, the Centre for New Culture in the heart of London’s Royal Docks. The Beams is set to open in October 2022 with an inaugural season of music programmed by Broadwick Live in partnership with LWE, reuniting the team that opened Printworks London in 2017.

The Beams is an authentically preserved former warehouse in East London’s historic industrial centre, with over 16,000 square metres of flexible space for large-scale creative expression and experimentation. During the week it will provide versatile space for modern industrial usage such as set builds, film and art production, photoshoots, brand events, exhibitions and fashion shows. Guests will be welcomed at the weekend for the music series and cultural events.

A testbed for creativity, The Beams is named after the factory-style light wells in the roof beams that flood the main space with natural light, making it a natural home for emerging artists and visionary culture.
