The Fireworks Factory's main space is our largest, with a remarkable 1500m² of flat floor space. Its flexible design offers complete freedom to configure your layout on the long or short axis, or even in the round. We've developed performance configurations from 300 to 1200 seats, or up to 1800 standing. Even with social distancing measures, the venue can accommodate audiences of up to 600 in a cabaret format. It's set to make its mark as one of London's most intimate large venues.

The Fireworks Factory has an exceptional natural room acoustic for classical music, and is equipped with a flexible system of acoustic baffles to ensure it's suitable for a range of performance genres and occupancies. Significant sound engineering has been undertaken as part of the refurbishment to safeguard against noise breakout and intrusion, and the room is also air-conditioned.

Truly expansive, the main space is supported by a back-of-house wing that includes four dressing rooms (one of which is a flexible group space for up to 100 people), a green room, changing rooms and a production office, giving you the versatility to bring your creative ideas to life. The room has been equipped with modern technical infrastructure, an abundance of power, lighting bars and facilities panels throughout, and also benefits from a dedicated control room and loading dock.

The building’s heritage is woven into the fabric of this space with its exposed brick walls, a painted concrete floor and a dramatic asymmetric glass roof, complemented by modern factory lighting suitable for orchestral rehearsal, and a bronze corrugated feature wall. To the south side, a stunning period glazed façade runs the length of the space, bordering the Arsenal's historic parade ground. To the east, spacious, modern front of house facilities connect the venue to the rest of the building, with an elegant bar adjoining our external courtyard via huge doors that offer a unique connection between our indoor and outdoor event spaces.

Whether you want to hold an outstanding live music event, host an awards ceremony with gala dinner, launch a new product, rehearse or record, this space is guaranteed to leave a lasting impression.

We’re hard at work putting the finishing touches to our buildings. The images shown here are composite renders, intended to give an impression of how each space will look when complete. The rooms in our heritage buildings vary in dimension from end-to-end and the information given is for the anticipated narrowest or shortest clear dimension. The details may be subject to change when building work has finished.
