Woolwich covered market’s sensory experience show opening tomorrow

A free new art show is set to open in Woolwich’s covered market from tomorrow (Tuesday 10th May) until Sunday 24th July.

Tickets for Dreamachine can be booked here.

The indoor market is set to be revamped and become a cinema operate by Picturehouse as part of the 801-home Woolwich Exchange scheme.

Future usage

That’s all some way away though given the need to obtain site ownership over a wide area of Woolwich, and in the meantime the site is being put to temporary usage.

The event is for 18+ only and could pose issues for some. They state:

“The High Sensory Dreamachine experience uses fast flashing bright lights, known as strobe lighting, and loud music. You will be comfortably seated with your eyes closed throughout the experience, and for many people the effects of the lights and the music will generate colourful, kaleidoscopic visuals behind your closed eyes. It is designed to be an enjoyable experience that can be both relaxing and exhilarating. You can leave the experience with ease at any time.”

The project was inspired by the work of artist and inventor Brion Gysin, who invented a dreamachine.


Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

    • wrong. It’s the Woolwich Works.

      • Nope. It’s in the covered market though branded as Woolwich Works.

    • Kendrick – the event’s own website states: “You’ll be able to see Dreamachine in Woolwich Public Market on Plumstead Road, Woolwich SE18 7BZ”

      It’s in the covered market.
