Dream Bags Jaguar Shoes

These two retail shops from the 1980s have been taken over by art organisation Jaguar Shoes Collective to offer a bar, cafe and a blank canvas exhibition space. The venue will be hosting alcohol brand Campari as part of its Campari Red Night District campaign this month. 

Shapes Hackney

A few minutes’ walk from Hackney Wick train station, you’ll find a former printing factory that has found a second life as an artists' studio and warehouse for events. The space can accommodate 930 standing, plus a canal-side outdoor area.

Geffrye Street Studio

This arched drive-in studio space in Hoxton dates back to 1860 and comes with a lounge, make up room and kitchenette. It can cater for 60 standing and 40 theatre-style.
