Broadwick Live has released a statement about the future of Printworks.

News surfaced earlier this year confirming that the venue had been included in a redevelopment program, meaning it would close its doors at some point in 2023. 

In a surprising u-turn, it appears that the venue may now remain open. 

The events company has confirmed it is currently locked in “detailed talks” with British Land about continuing to operate Printworks beyond the development of its Surrey Quays location.

Although the exact plans have not been decided, the venue still seems destined to close “for a number of years during a period of modernisation”. 

Broadwick Live is hopeful Printworks can reopen at a later date, noting its commitment to “preserving the essence of the iconic Press Halls and retaining the spirit of Printworks for our return.”

The statement, reported by Mixmag, reads: “We’re delighted to confirm that in partnership with British Land we are in detailed talks about our return to the venue following the site’s redevelopment.

“While there is still a detailed planning process that needs to take place before we can 100% confirm our return, we’re now further along in this process than we have been for some time.

“At this point, we can confirm that the venue will close at some point in the New Year, for a number of years during a period of modernisation as planned. As a team we are committed to preserving the essence of the iconic Press Halls and retaining the spirit of Printworks for our return.

“In the meantime, we have every intention of seeing out this chapter of Printworks, in its current guise, in the best way possible as a salute to the legacy of the last five years.

“Thank you for your unwavering support. The backing of our community has been vital in getting us to this point and is crucial to the future of Printworks London.”
