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.

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.
