The state-of-the-art new home in London City Island opens up multiple opportunities for creation, collaboration, commercial activity and engagement. With four large rehearsal studios, the full height fly-tower Production Studio, social spaces and meeting rooms, English National Ballet has a home to be proud of and to grow in. The new home has been designed by award-winning architects Glenn Howells Architects. At 93,000 square feet, it is four times the size of previous buildings. These world class facilities will not only fulfil our needs now, but for generations to come, inspiring and developing the dancers, choreographers, costume-makers, musicians, participants and audiences of the future.
The venue is the cultural anchor in London’s newest neighbourhood, London City Island. A space where we can share practice, generate ideas and create extraordinary experiences for our audiences and partners. We have excellent transport links, served by the Jubilee and DLR lines at Canning Town – 20 minutes from central London and only five minutes from Stratford, where the new Sadler’s Wells, V&A and London College of Fashion are opening. Once Crossrail opens in late 2019 there will be another fast link to Canary Wharf and Stratford.
The Production Studio
The Production Studio is a blank canvas and can be a productive technical theatre space, an engaging conference or training space, and can transform into a magical hospitality space. With a full height fly tower and a stage space to match London’s largest theatres, the Production studio offers a technical space in which to rehearse and produce performances. It is incredibly versatile and can also be used as a dining space, presentation and training venue and for showcasing brands and organisations.
The Rehearsal Studios
The venue offers large rehearsal studios, 15 x 15 x 5.5m in size, acoustically treated and featuring state of the art harlequin flooring. The studios are not only world-class rehearsal spaces but also make the perfect space for a variety of events. Highly suitable for workshops, training sessions, a drinks reception, castings, film and photography and a whole range of other hospitality events.
The studios feature dance mirrors and ballet barres on 3-4 walls (which can be covered if requested) speakers, a 55″ screen, a piano which is included within the hire, and lots of natural light from the floor to ceiling windows.
The Mezzanine is a bright, welcoming space situated on the first floor of the English National Ballet’s new home on London City Island. The iconic floor to ceiling shuttered windows gives the area lots of natural light throughout the day whilst also remaining a private space. It is highly suitable for workshops, training sessions and can be used together with the Bickle room to bring the capacity up to 200 standing. This Mezzanine also makes a wonderful setting for a drinks reception and is a highly versatile space for a range of hospitality events.
The Bickle Room
30 boardroom style
The Bickle Room is a welcoming space situated on the first floor of the English National Ballet’s new home on London City Island. This room makes a great breakout space when hired together with the Mezzanine but can also be used on its own for workshops, training sessions and meetings.

The event went very well thank you - the venue was superb and fitted our requirements exactly. I wholeheartedly recommend it. I will definitely be in touch when I need help finding a venue for our next event.

Easy to work with and cost-effective. In 2014 The Venue Booker was asked to identify a suitable, new venue for Chambers’ prestigious Medical Law Lecture. Jenny not only met the brief by finding the right venue but she also secured it on favourable terms.
Richard Rodger, Hailsham Chambers
Morning Jenny! Everything went very well thank you and the venue was a huge success!! Thank you so much again for finding such a gem! I am still getting lovely emails now so a big thank you for all your support Jenny!! I have been singing your praises all week!
Sarah Grant, GKN
The Venue Booker provided us with a fantastic selection of venues to view for the two events we enquired about – each of these met our brief, several offered something really special and most of them came with discounted rates that we would not have been able to achieve on our own. The service is free of charge and Jenny is friendly and helpful. We will definitely use them again.
Rachel Bailey, Clement
I'd be pleased to recommend Jenny, The Venue Booker. I knew our request was going to be a tall order but she rose to the challenge, negotiated some cracking rates and retained her patience and professionalism despite some spectacular dithering at our end!
