15,000 capacity DRUMSHEDS venue to open in North London

DRUMSHEDS, a new 608,000 sqft, 15,000 capacity venue space will be opened by Broadwick on an old IKEA site in Tottenham, North London, later this year.

The venue will open this September in a vast industrial warehouse and is described as a ‘hybrid home for culture in London’, with a curated programme of music, arts, culture, and community.

Broadwick is the team behind award-winning spaces including Printworks, Beams, Depot Mayfield and more.

The opening programme of events will be delivered by the Broadwick Live division, who are known for delivering one-of-a-kind experiences through unparalleled line-ups and forward-thinking production and venue creativity.

The opening programme of culture events will be announced shortly, in the meantime, sign up to the DRUMSHEDS mailing list to keep up to date with news.

The new DRUMSHEDS space finds its home in a vast and sprawling warehouse in North London’s Meridian Water zone. Broadwick is following on from its previous DRUMSHEDS space, and transforming the name into a totally new concept (and location.) Across 608,000 sqft, DRUMSHEDS has a machine-made feel, with soaring ceilings and expansive rooms that can hold up to 15,000 guests. 

DRUMSHEDS will be continuously reconfigured and transformed to create new and exciting spatial environments that are then filled with a variety of incredible content. Available for hire via the group’s Spaces division, the venue’s specifications and layout are fluid, with malleable, hybrid areas that will be moulded for multiple purposes. Complete set builds, fashion shows, music events and brand activations represent just a few examples of activities that will be taking place. 

Features and layout of the unique warehouse space will stay intact. Guests will be able to see the old lift shafts, loading bays, sprawling floors and machinery as they transition through the impressive space.

Simeon Aldred, Director of Strategy at Broadwick, said: “Broadwick’s mission has always been to build brands that deliver unrivaled, live experiences that create real impact. We are proud to announce DRUMSHEDS, set to be London’s most impactful cultural space of its kind, set across 608,000 sqft in North London. We want Drumsheds, like all the spaces we create, to be new centres of cultural gravity that provide the basis for human connection. A connection that people crave now more than ever.”

A concept proven in spaces such as Printworks who hosted many of London’s most vital cultural events in its time, fromFashion Week events (Raf Simmons, A Cold Wall, Mulberry) to the sold-out music seasons that welcomed The London Symphony and Aurora orchestras, live acts, DJs, dancers and more. Aphex Twin, Skepta, BICEP, Peggy Gou, Defected, Glitterbox, The Hydra and thousands more major artists and brands passed through the doors of Printworks over the years. 

Printworks also pioneered the daytime show concept for a safer and more accessible event experience, which will be mirrored in the soon to be announced DRUMSHEDS programme. Now closed for redevelopment along with the surrounding area, Broadwick plans to reopen Printworks in 2026.

Located in the North London’s industrial Meridian Water zone, which is only 4 mins from Tottenham Hale (Victoria Line) DRUMSHEDS will be easily accessible via tube, rail and buses.  

Broadwick will be working with the local authorities on outreach to support the surrounding community with employment in the new space, in addition to schemes such as free tickets for previous employees of the space so they can enjoy the venue in its new iteration.
