About this space

**Please note that as per Covid-19 government guidance the capacity of events is currently limited to 14 attendees.

Siobhan Davies Studios is a contemporary arts space housed in a converted Victorian school, creating an unusual balance between old and new design that makes it very versatile for a multitude of events, from rehearsals through to wedding ceremonies.

Our Research Studio, a flexible space with its white walls and windows is a blank canvas waiting to be transformed to your needs. Smaller than the Roof Studio, it provides a more intimate setting. This studio is equipped with a full 5.1 surround sound system, Blu-ray player and 1000k HD projector. Seats and benches can be set up if you wish to deliver a conference or film screening. For weddings and larger events, the Research Studio can be utilised as the bar, a chillout area, for speeches, or even a children's playroom.

Loved everything, the venue the hospitality and the night was perfect


Our South London Studios are available to hire for rehearsals, meetings and special events. From our large, beautiful Roof and Research studios to our small meeting spaces we can provide the ideal setting for parties, celebrations or whatever event space you may need.

The building was originally built in 1898 as a school annex. And in 2006, RIBA-award winning architect Sarah Wigglesworth redesigned the building into a flexible event space in a sustainable and innovative way. The building is balanced between old and new design, and the footprint of the original building remains.

The Studios holds a civil wedding licence, so wedding and civil partnership ceremonies and celebrations can both be held on site.

The Studios also provides the perfect venue for children’s parties, offering a selection of large, engaging spaces for children to play in, and quieter areas for serving refreshments.

The numerous flexible spaces can be used for a range of corporate events such as launch parties, conferences, photo shoots and film screenings, and AV equipment and technical support can also be provided.

Facilities & Services available:

• Changing rooms
• Kitchenette
• Free wifi
• Disabled toilets
• Baby changing facilities
• Lift
• Hearing induction loop
• Trusted catering partners
• AV equipment
• 5.1 surround sound
• PA system, microphones, 8 channel desk
• Basic lighting or full theatre lights
• LED uplighters
• AV: projectors, TVs and Blu Ray/ DVD players

Please note: neither the Roof Studio nor the Research Studio are equipped with barres or mirrors, and we ask that hirers remove their shoes before using either space to preserve the condition of the linoleum flooring. For events and larger hires the linoleum may be taken up and shoes worn, although this incurs an extra charge.

For more information, to check availability, or to arrange a site visit, please contact the reception team through Tagvenue.
