Do you know a venue or business at risk?

London is a world-class cultural city, and many areas in the capital are thriving. At the same time cultural facilities are at risk of closure. The Mayor has set up the first ever Culture at Risk Office to help safeguard London’s well-loved cultural places and spaces from being lost.

We can do different thing to help save cultural facilities, from mediating disputes to working directly with local authorities and business owners to reviewing planning applications.

Due to the number of challenges that cultural infrastructure operators face it is not possible to prevent every closure. The Culture at Risk Office has supported over 300 cases, including:

  • helping the Rio Cinema in Dalston to raise funds for a refurbishment
  • helping the Electric Ballroom in Camden increase its capacity
  • protecting Club 414 in Brixton from redevelopment
  • keeping the historic 100 Club on Oxford Street open
  • supporting a landmark case to ensure the Joiners Arms, an LGBT+ venue in Hoxton, is replaced like-for-like in a new development
