UNIQUE RAW INDUSTRIAL SPACE FOR EXPERIENTIAL EVENTS

Clerkenwell, EC1R

+0

Clerkenwell, EC1R

The Space

PLEASE NOTE: THIS VENUE ONLY ACCEPTS CORPORATE EVENTS Due to council restrictions we cannot hire the venue later than 23:00. Guests should be offsite by 21:30.

The venue will not accept the following: Warehouse (rave) parties, Loud music events, or late evening events.

A totally unique, atmospheric and historic 9000 sq/ft venue, deep in the heart of Clerkenwell.

Nestled within the hub of London's design and creative district, lies a prison built in the 17th Century, this 130 standing venue has a long turbulent history. It was one of the busiest prisons in Victorian times, and well known for its attempted inmate escapes, as well as being used as an air raid shelter during the Blitz. Today, it's a distinctive venue space perfect for product launches, presentations and immersive events. The cavernous, segmented chambers hold the infrastructure to cater to almost any type of event, offering space that it is impossible to find elsewhere in popular post codes for commercial events in London. Where else can you offer exhibitors packaged up space in individual prison cells? NOTE: This space is partially outside and exposed to the elements.
