New 3.000-capacity venue to open in London
West London is set to welcome new venue named Exhibition London later this year.

The new venue is being handled by Broadwick Live, the team who have overseen the phenomenal success of South London spot Printworks.

Setting their sights on West London, the team have secured the iconic Grade II listed Dimco East building in collaboration with the nearby Westfield centre.

Completed in 1899 the striking Victorian building was used as the site of the Franco British Exhibition of 1908, and more recently doubled as the Acme Factory in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? before becoming disused.

Spanning two floors, the 34,000 sq. ft. events and hospitality venue aims to have a capacity of 3000, spread across multiple rooms.

Bradley Thompson, MD of Broadwick Live & Venues, says:
“Exhibition represents an important moment in the evolution of Westfield London, creating a unique entertainment hub and enhancing the area’s cultural kudos. It will attract and serve not only the local community, but the ever-increasing number of people who rightly view White City as one of the most exciting growth places in the capital. The location is perfect and the building itself is incredible. We are committed to respecting its past and investing in its future; offering fantastic, contemporary experiences against a stunning Victorian backdrop.”

Amy Lamé, London’s Night Czar, says: “London’s night-time culture is the most diverse in the world and our night-time economy is growing faster than the wider economy. The great range of entertainment venues in the capital play a vital role in this vibrant nightlife, so I’m delighted to see this historic location turned into a brand new venue for arts, music and cultural events.”

Exhibition London aims to launch at the end of 2019.
