About this space

This space is highly versatile and can be used for all sorts of events such as private dining, Christmas drinks parties, birthdays, film screenings, workshops, networking and talks.

The room opens up onto the large heated and covered terrace, ideal for a pre- or post-networking space to enjoy food and drink or a business lunch. A large screen can be rolled out onto the back wall and the whole room can be completely blacked out and privatised. There is an aux cord so that you can play your own music, and DJ's will be playing outside throughout the evenings on weekends too so you can dance the night away. Lots of natural light can also flood into the room through the large glass double doors.

PA system, TV, and microphones are available. QR codes can be opened on the tables so that guests can order food and drink during the event.

Brilliant venue. The team were incredibly helpful and accommodating. They went out of their way to make it a special event. I would highly recommend this venue.


Peckham Arches is a 600pax multifunctional event space with one of the largest all weather outdoor terraces in SE London.

The Gallery and private screening & meeting rooms sit on either side of the large central arch where you will find a dance floor, a full-service cocktail bar, lighting, PA and DJ booth perfect for weddings, live music nights, brand activations, corporate parties, screenings, album launches and supper clubs.

The indoor and outdoor space can be divided into different areas with varied unfixed furniture allowing for both a seated and/or standing arrangement.
