Coming Soon: London’s next major artistic venues

London has been a global culture and economic powerhouse for centuries. There’s no doubt that as the city continues to grow and thrive, more venues are added to the city’s already massive roster of educational and entertainment options. Several major galleries and museums have opened the last year and more will be opened in the near future.

Fotografiska

Fotografiska, a major Swedish photography museum, has expanded from Stockholm to London. An otherwise ugly corner of Whitechapel has been brightened with some of the world’s best photography.

Alexander Montague-Sparey was recently announced as the curator for the London site. The world-famous institution had reportedly looked for a new site in London for a long time. 25 exhibitions will be displayed across seven galleries when Fotografiska opens next spring.

Battersea Power Station

We recently wrote about Battersea Power Station’s new glass elevator and cultural venues but it’s worth reiterating the effect that these new performance venues will have not just for the new development of Battersea Power Station and Nine Elms, but for all of South London.

A new 1,500 seat venue that can be changed for multiple uses, and another 250-seat space, will allow for the competition to host events and shows for spaces to ease off. Battersea Power Station will open in 2021.

Bridge theatre

It opened last year and the Bridge Theatre is making a big impact on the theatre scene in London. The new 900 seat space is the permanent home for the London Theatre Company, an offshoot of the National Theatre. The new space is modular, allowing flexible and different performances.

V&A East

The Victoria & Albert Museum is an institute, showcasing the world’s best in art and design, past, present and future. The V&A, as its known, has recently announced plans to expand to east London, to the site of the former London Olympics grounds in the Stratford Waterfront in 2023. The new expansion, Here East, will be a partnership with the USA’s Smithsonian Museum.

With London continuing to boom with magnificent cultural attractions, it’s never too late to invest in London residential property or find your new home here. To learn more, contact Copperstones at enquiry@copperstones.com, +44 203 888 5555 **or 08445 555 555**.
