“After a long wait we are ready to welcome people through our doors, conduct site visits and start planning events," comments Justicia Adjei, Woolwich Works Event Sales Manager: “Woolwich works has fantastic facilities, great access and creative links that will make it the ideal venue for clients from both the corporate and association sides of the market.  Whether it be a dinner, award ceremony, large scale conference or smaller meeting we have the capability to deliver and are particularly lucky to have invested heavily in the technology necessary to run hybrid events.”

Speaking about the launch in the wake of the pandemic, James Heaton, Woolwich Works Chief Executive, comments: For all who have found ways of working together from home over the past year, nothing can replace live events as way of uniting people to imagine, create and innovate.  I’m excited that our beautiful new venue will have a part to play in enabling London’s conferences and events to come back bigger and better than ever before.”
