Popular shopping destination Westfield London has announced that it will be opening a new 34,000 square-foot venue and events space.
Westfield owner Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield and Broadwick Venues have partnered to create the new space, called 'Exhibition', which will span two floors, have a standing capacity of 3000, and offer space for live music events, brand experiences, product launches and exhibitions.
“Exhibition represents an important moment in the evolution of Westfield London, creating a unique entertainment hub and enhancing the area’s cultural kudos,” Bradley Thompson, MD of Broadwick Live and Venues, said in a statement. “It will attract and serve not only the local community, but the ever-increasing number of people who rightly view White City as one of the most exciting growth places in the capital. The location is perfect and the building itself is incredible.
“We are committed to respecting its past and investing in its future, offering fantastic, contemporary experiences against a stunning Victorian backdrop.”
Work is set to begin on the space this month and it is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
