London music venue The Drumsheds is permanently closing after one final show later this month.
Show promoter The Hydra announced the news on The Drumshed’s website. In it, they write about a show called NOT TO BE that was postponed last December and rescheduled to January 29th. “NOT TO BE will also be the last show ever at The Drumsheds, which closes its doors next month,” they explain.
The original show included headlining sets from artists such as Four Tet and Floating Points. While the headlining sets remain the same, other artists originally scheduled could not make it to this new show. “It was either this date, or canceling the event altogether,” reads the website verbiage. “But what a way to go, closing out this outstanding venue with this show…”
Operated by Broadwick Venues (the same company that owns popular venues Printworks London and Exhibition), The Drumsheds opened in June of 2019. It has a 10,000-person capacity interlinked across four warehouses along with 10 acres of outdoor space. It was developed as part of the Meridian Water in Enfield, a £6 billion regeneration project intended to turn the industrial area into a creative/artistic hub.
As of this writing, no reason for The Drumsheds’ closure has been given.
