The NTIA are delighted to hear the news on Printworks and are pleased to have been able to support Broadwick Live in retaining Printworks as an important part of London Night Time Economy.
Printwork’s will remain an important part of London’s cultural tapestry. It has been amazing to work with Broadwick Live’s team to ensure that this remains the case for London.
Statement by Broadwick Group:
“We’re delighted to confirm that in partnership with British Land we are in detailed talks about our return to the venue following the site’s redevelopment.
“While there is still a detailed planning process that needs to take place before we can 100% confirm our return, we’re now further along in this process than we have been for some time.
“At this point, we can confirm that the venue will close at some point in the New Year, for a number of years during a period of modernisation as planned. As a team we are committed to preserving the essence of the iconic Press Halls and retaining the spirit of Printworks for our return.
“In the meantime, we have every intention of seeing out this chapter of Printworks, in its current guise, in the best way possible as a salute to the legacy of the last five years. “Thank you for your unwavering support. The backing of our community has been vital in getting us to this point and is crucial to the future of Printworks London.”
Simeon Aldred, Director of Strategy at Broadwick Live said:
“In this decisive moment for the future of one of London’s most loved venues, we are humbled and grateful for the support of our community and partners. We have been working hard on an elevated design which protects the raw and original nature of the Press Halls, which we are excited to reveal in due course. We will need your continued support as we enter the planning process with Southwark Council in the coming months.
“The cultural resonance and debate around the future of Printworks only comes to demonstrate the importance of preserving authenticity and culture at the heart of our neighbourhoods and urban redevelopments.”
Roger Madelin, joint Head of Canada Water at British Land said:
“Over the past 6 years we have built a terrific relationship with Broadwick Live, and we very much look forward to being able to secure a long term future for culture, business and music with them at the Printworks.”
