What you need to know

Moments from Old Street tube station is Shoreditch Electric Light Station. Having begun its life as an electricity generating station in 1896, it’s a unique and historical venue that offers several extensive areas available to hire as well as more intimate spaces too. The Combustion Chamber is the largest area and features an astounding 17.5-metre high ceiling and an interesting exposed brickwork environment, suitable for up to 500 guests theatre style. Then there is the Generating Chamber, another enormous space for up to 300 people that boasts exposed red brickwork, steel beams and a number of curious windows that surround it. There isn’t really any event these spaces can’t host, from conferences to launches, exhibitions and celebrations; they are blank canvas, warehouse spaces where imagination can run amuck. And, might we add, both completely pillarless too. There are an additional five smaller spaces that provide excellent breakout areas as well as the Courtyard, an unusually large outdoor space for East London that leads directly into the Combustion Chamber. says…

The sheer size of their spaces provides awe-inspiring arenas for audiences and with a little lighting and production, they are transformed into immersive and engaging environments. As well as being a dramatic venue for corporate events, it’s home to the National Centre for Circus Arts and doubles up as a place where creativity can blossom.
