New Creative District to be Called Woolwich Works

The Royal Borough of Greenwich has announced the name chosen by the public for the new creative district in Woolwich.  It will be known as the Woolwich Works.

The multi-million pound revamp of wartime buildings in Woolwich will eventually feature artistic performance spaces, a courtyard, market area and exhibition zones.

Councillors Danny Thorpe and Miranda Williams made the announcement on Saturday, live on Maritime Radio, from the General Gordon Square stage at the Royal Greenwich Get Together and Armed Forces Day event.

The final scheme will include a 450-seat theatre, 600-seat performance courtyard as well as rehearsal studios, offices, restaurants and community spaces.

The huge project is nearing the end of the design phase, with a contractor having started initial work.
