Shoreditch Electric Light Station is a unique facility offering highly adaptable, fully accessible & completely dry hireable spaces. Retaining the features and character of an imposing industrial space, the building began life as an electricity generating station in 1896. The magnificent Combustion and Generating Chambers, numerous smaller studios & an impressive outdoor Courtyard space, are available to hire throughout the year and have been used for events as diverse as product launches, galas, film/broadcast industry showcases, technology events and award ceremonies.
We are also home to the National Centre for Circus Arts, a charity offering circus arts education through a rolling programme of courses and classes, including a BA degree in Circus Arts, youth and adult classes, team-building workshops and experience days. We also offer space for professional artists to train and create. All revenue from our commercial venue hire goes straight back into the running of the Centre.
