A new 3000-capacity club is set to open in west London.
The venue, named Exhibition, is being opened in partnership between the team behind Printworks (Broadwick Venues) and Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield. Work on the venue commences this month, with the expected opening date to land toward the end of the year.
The project will bring Wesfield’s Grade-II listed Dimco building into public use for the first time. Located at Wesfield shopping centre, right by Shepherd's Bush station, the 34,000 square foot Victorian building was originally used as a electricity generating station for the London Underground – but you might more readily recognise it from the film ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit?’.
With events being managed by the same people who have brought us huge club line-up after huge club line-up at Printworks, one can only expect this new multi-room venue to be another dream location for those who like their parties massive.
“London’s night-time culture is the most diverse in the world and our night-time economy is growing faster than the wider economy,” said London’s Night Czar Amy Lamé in an official statement. “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.”
Since opening in 2017, Printworks has become one of the most crucial venues in London. Shortly after its first event, DJ Mag asked if the city had its “Berghain moment” when the venue opened its doors.
