Printworks, Canada Water

The opening weekend
Printworks is a new 5,000-capacity music and arts venue on the site of the old Associated Newspaper printing presses in Canada Water. Following an opening party this month, its line-up in March includes events hosted by Melt Festival, Nina Kravitz and The Hydra.

Printworks has doubled as a Death Star and a zombie rat run in recent Secret Cinema productions and anyone who experienced it in either of those incarnations will attest to its versatility. It's a huge campus and a massive asset for South East London, which is not over-blessed with major venues.

Hit The Floor writes:

"The venue will undoubtedly put London nightlife firmly back on the worldwide map... Was this the best time to open such an establishment when the whole night-time community was being scrutinised and pulled apart? The answer is yes. Yes, this is a perfect time.

"The opening of Printworks has not only solidified the idea that not only is London club culture going anywhere, but we now finally have a venue to rival our European counterparts."

"Printworks comes to us from the team behind LWE, Junction 2 and the now infamous daytime raves at Tobacco Dock... LWE is currently unrivalled and are consistently raising the bar and expectations for what it means to host a successful rave."
