Woolwich Works, also known as Woolwich Creative District, is a multi-disciplinary cultural hub on the Royal Arsenal in Woolwich.

The landmark venue opened its doors in September 2021 after a multi-million-pound restoration project by the Royal Borough of Greenwich and has since been named London's ‘best new spot for culture’ by Time Out. The programme includes cutting-edge contemporary music, award-winning stand-up comedy, as well as theatre, dance, cabaret and everything in between. 

From large-scale concerts, comedy nights and conferences in the Fireworks Factory to family shows in the studios, and intimate events in the ‘brilliant little venue in a big venue’, the Visitors’ Book Café – also open for coffee, drinks and food during the day.

As a registered charity, the trust also has a commitment to community access, engagement, and participation, including an education and community programme.
