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.

We have three packages available for weddings and civil ceremonies. Including our full package at £5500, a reception only package at £4125 and a ceremony only package at £1430 (all prices include VAT). These packages have been tailor made to provide everything such an occasion may need of a dry hire venue at the most efficient costs. For more details on what is included please get in touch to request a copy of our brochure.

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.

For more information, to check availability or to book a venue tour please contact us today.

PLEASE NOTE: Wedding bookings taking place in 2020 are now closed. We are now taking bookings from January 2021 onwards, subject to availability.

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

Rules of the space

Rules:

Our spaces are available for hire subject to availability.

We have a no shoes, food or drink policy within our two studio spaces. Our harlequin dance floor can be removed at extra cost to allow for shoes, food and drink for events/venue hire.

Please note that we can apply for a temporary extension for our building to remain open on Fridays and Saturdays until 12am, but we are unable to take bookings for hires past this time.

Additional Space Information:

Neither the Roof Studio nor the Research Studio are equipped with barres or mirrors but audio-visual equipment can be made available to suit your needs. Our experienced Studios team can help you to make sure your rehearsal, workshop or class runs smoothly.

We have a kitchenette available, which has a functioning microwave, kettle, fridge, sink and kitchen equipment/utensils.

Our nearest tube and rail station is Elephant and Castle which is a 5-minute walk from the station. Other nearby stations are Waterloo and Lambeth North. There are cafes and shops in the surrounding area.

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.
