Greenwich gets new Magazine

25 September 2019

A NEW venue a stone’s throw from AEG-owned the O2 Arena (cap, 21,00) has opened, offering a 3,000-capacity indoor concert space and an exterior area, branded Showground, able to accommodate 7,000.

Warehouse-style venue Magazine London was constructed on the Greenwich Peninsula by property developer Knight Dragon, the company behind the transformation of the area.

The venue’s operator, Vibrations Group, which manages London’s Printworks (3,000), says it has invested £1.2 million on in-house sound and lighting systems. Among the acts confirmed to play is Michael Bibi.

“Magazine London is set to become an integral part of the capital’s events landscape,” says Vibration Group strategy and creative director Simeon Aldred. “This is a huge milestone for the development of Greenwich Peninsula. To have created a brand-new cultural venue here is crucial in adding to the cultural diversity of the area.”

Situated on the banks of the River Thames, with views of Canary Wharf, the venue  is less than 300 metres from North Greenwich Underground station.
