Village Underground

31st Jul 2015

Part creative community, part arts venue, Village Underground is a non-profit space for creativity and culture in the heart of east London. The main Village Underground centre is housed in a renovated turn-of-the-century warehouse primed for everything from concerts and club nights to exhibitions, theatre, live art and other performances.

High above Great Eastern Street, atop the venue, four recycled Jubilee line train carriages and shipping containers make up the creative studios of Village Underground. These uniquely renovated spaces accommodate up to 50 artists, writers, designers, filmmakers, VJ's, and musicians working side-by-side in a creative community. Past artists include Jack Garratt, Nick Mulvery and George The Poet.

In addition to being a cultural centre, Village Underground is an ecological project. From recycled trains and shipping containers, to reclaimed sleepers, staircases, furniture and flooring, we believe in reusing before recycling. All studios are virtually carbon neutral while their electricity is supplied by Ecotricity - 100% green energy from wind turbines. The living roof increases biodiversity, dampens concert noise, reduces urban heat, absorbs carbon emissions and provides insulation, cutting fuel consumption and minimizing environmental impact.
