A large blank space with high ceilings – Village Underground is ideal for filming and photography shoots.

Our story

We started life as an idea – what if you could make affordable studios for struggling artists, out of old tube train carriages?

Underneath, a Victorian warehouse had fallen into disrepair. We saw the potential in it, put a roof on it, cleared out all of the rubbish, sandblasted the walls, and laid down a floor to transform it into the venue that became Village Underground.

Since then, we’ve become a vital London venue, played by Blondie, Pixies, The Stone Roses, Jarvis Cocker, IDLES, Charlie XCX and many more.

Case Studies

Over our 15 years in the events industry, we’ve worked with top clients and brands to transform the space.
