About this space

Nestled just beyond London's busy South Bank, Siobhan Davies Studios provide the perfect venue for a wedding ceremony and/or reception in South London.

Housed in a converted Victorian school this contemporary arts space creates a unique balance between old and new design that makes it a versatile space to suit any style or vision. For your special day you will have access to the entire building and the spaces available can be reinvented to suit your themes and ideas.

Our Studios hold a wedding and civil partnership licence so we can provide a beautiful location for your ceremony and reception. We cater for all weddings and are proud to be a gay friendly venue and are happy to provide a space for same sex marriages.

Our wedding package starts from £5000 for exclusive hire of the building. This includes set-up on a Friday evening and Saturday morning, as well as your wedding ceremony and reception on the Saturday. The reception would finish at midnight* and included in the price is storage until the Monday morning for any large items that can’t be collected until then.

We do not have onsite catering but we have partnered with a few different caterers who are able to offer various different menus from a pop up kitchen on site. We are happy to send these through on request.

*Midnight is the latest that any event can go on until at Siobhan Davies Studios.

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.

• Changing rooms

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.
