After seeing success with its Printworks London venue, Broadwick Venues is opening another venue in the north of the city, The Drumsheds, in June.

With a 10 acre outdoor festival site and four, interlinked warehouses that hold 10,000, the new venue is set to play host to the 2019 edition of Field Day festival. The venue is located at Meridian Water in Enfield, near the Tottenham Marshes and soon-to-open Meridian Water train station.

The Drumsheds forms part of the £6 billion Meridian Water regeneration project, which aims to transform the former industrial site, and once opened will be London’s biggest warehouse venue.

Bradley Thompson, managing director of Broadwick Venues, commented: “The Drumsheds epitomises both Broadwick Venues’ dedication to quality, innovation and creativity, and Meridian Water’s commitment to be a true 24-hour destination. We’re confident that people will be as blown away by it as we are.”

“I’m delighted that The Drumsheds is the latest venue to open in our capital and proud that it shows Enfield’s commitment to delivering the mayor’s 24-hour vision for London,” added Amy Lamé, London’s night czar.

“London has the most diverse nighttime culture in the world, and this innovative new event space, at the heart of a major regeneration project, will be a great addition to our wide range of entertainment venues.”
