A look inside Woolwich’s forthcoming Cultural District as plans submitted
Woolwich’s Creative District has taken a step forward with plans for conversion of Grade II Listed Building 19 submitted and a new-build ticket office.
This photo show the interior which will be converted into performance space.
In total four Grade II and one Grade II* listed buildings will be used to create 15,000 square metres of flexible space for use as performance and rehearsal venues, dance studios, exhibition areas, event spaces and workshops.
This application mainly covered Building 19 and a new ticket office.
Building 19 was the former carriage mounting shop.
The buildings are designed for an “immersive theatre show will include live and recorded performances, a micro cinema, karaoke, room hire, daytime events, evening parties, ancillary offices, workshops for production departments, production space and theatrical, schools and training workshops and the sale of food and beverage within the show bar”.
The capacity for shows is estimated to be 750 people with 130 staff.
A temporary link building is to be built between Building 19 and Building 17 (the former Firepower Museum) which will act as a ticket office.
A fantastic site covering the history of the Arsenal site can be seen here.
The planning reference is 18/2335/L
