I am delighted to announce that we have secured two premises licences at Meridian Water in Enfield for Broadwick Live in conjunction with Venue Lab.
I have been lucky enough to be instructed by Venue Lab in the significant development of their estate over recent years. I was pleased to have secured the Printworks Licence in the former news press hall of the Evening Standard, Daily Mail and Metro Printworks in Canada Water which has gone on to become the iconic venue in South London. Subsequent to that, we secured a premises licence for Exhibition London in the former Victorian Structure which originally was used as an engine house for the Central London Railways. The premises sit within the heart of the Westfield Development in Shephard’s Bush and will become an event space and live music venue.
The vision which my client have shown in relation to these premises caused Enfield Council to approach them to see if there was interest in the redevelopment of Meridian Water in Enfield. Having secured a premises licence for the Field Day Festival to be operated on the site this year, I have recently negotiated hard with all of the responsible authorities to allow for the grant of the 7,000 capacity new premises to be known as the Drumsheds. This will operate as an events space and late night electronic and live music venue, exhibiting all of the usual vision of Venue Lab to convert redundant industrial buildings.
This has been developed in partnership with Enfield and Meridian Water, the UK’s largest regeneration project. A £6 billion investment will transform the site into a thriving hub of creativity, which even includes a new network rail over-ground station at Meridian Water.
The Drumsheds sits at the heart of this huge regeneration project and Broadwick Venues and Venue Lab are proud to partner Enfield Council to create this new destination for events, culture and the arts in North London.
I was involved from initial instructions to attending before the licensing sub-committee to secure the premises licence for the Drumsheds.
