After a five-year redevelopment the iconic Riverside Studios have a brand-new building as part of a residential development led by London developers Mount Anvil and A2 Dominion.
Hammersmith’s historic arts centre with cutting-edge facilities is due to open in three phases, with the doors to the new multi-million-pound building now open to the public for the first time. The opening starts a process of bringing the same spirit back to the contemporary London arts scene, and is expected to re-ignite the same passion and excitement that was at the heart of the original building.
The new Riverside Studios boasts multiple performance, rehearsal and broadcast spaces which will each contribute to its ongoing story by presenting exhibitions, independent film and theatre from both established and emerging voices. The cultural hub continues a proud tradition that started when it first opened as a film studio in the 1930s, then as one of the original BBC TV Studios in the 1950s, where after it developed a worldwide reputation for presenting innovative art and became a home for some of the leading names in the theatre, television and film industries.
