Venue Review – Printworks, SE1

One of the biggest new venues launched this year, Printworks is a huge former printing press-turned-superclub/events space. At a time where nightlife/event venues in London have been placed in jeopardy for a variety of reasons, Printworks sprung up (seemingly out of nowhere) and has become a focal point for daytime events of all sizes.

I'll start off by saying this definitely one of the most go-to places in London.

The layout of the venue is kind unique in that it's circular - as you go … Continue reading Venue Review – Notting Hill Arts Club, Notting Hill Gate
