Southwark Council has approved plans to turn renowned London venue Printworks into working space.

News of a potential renovation emerged in October 2021 after property developer British Land submitted a proposal to Southwark Council.

Understandably, this sparked a reaction from the clubbing community with a change.org petition amassing over 10,000 signatures – calling for plans to repurpose the 6,000 capacity venue to be scrapped.

“During a time where more people are working from home than ever before, the last thing that is needed is more office space,” argued the petition’s author, Will Gooddy.

“Reports have revealed London has lost almost a quarter of its nightclubs since the pandemic started. Industry bosses fear London risks losing its reputation as one of the world’s premier clubbing capitals.”

On Monday 11th July, the pans were approved as part of the Canada Water Masterplan, including several other redevelopments in the area.

The venue, along with Surrey Quays’ leisure centre and shopping centre, will be turned into a co-working space with retail areas and offices across a 10,600 sqm interior – making it one of the largest co-working spaces in the country.

It’s not yet known when the club will officially cease operation, but the team behind Printworks are already on the hunt for a new venue to replace Printworks.

Printworks may not have been here for long, but it has definitely made its mark on the capital’s clubbing scene. Another one bites the dust.
