Construction has begun on creating a 10,000 capacity music and events venue in Greenwich due to open this summer.
One of the first events to be publicised at Magazine is a winter-themed event promising “spectacular entertainment and stunning food” in winter 2019.
Before then a music festival is planned for this summer. The site will boast various rooms and mezzanine levels within a box-like building alongside outside stages.
Plans for the venue were approved last year with up to 200 events a year planned. A music venue for up to 10,000 people will be on site offering views over the Thames to Canary Wharf. Internal capacity is 3,000 with a further 7,000 people able to be accommodated outside.
Venue Lab and Printworks are partners on the venue – and have previously held events on a jetty in Greenwich.
The site currently has works ongoing beside a golf range to the west of the o2 – which is not related to this venture and has different owners.
