In 2013 we expanded the community we have created in our little corner of Tower Hamlets by taking over an old industrial location in a disused space directly opposite Oval Space.
Once a Pickle Factory in London's cockney heartland, this warehouse then became a medical supplies storage space until it was finally reinvented as a venue sometime in 2013.
Now a blank canvas location in the same style as its larger counterpart, The Pickle Factory has been turned into a cosy, chic and versatile events space that is available either as a supplement to, or completely independently from Oval Space.
The Pickle Factory offers 255 sqm in a slightly askew rectangular shape, with white walls throughout. Steel beams across the ceiling facilitate rigging equipment overhead and the frosted skylights allow natural daylight to pour through: this is your ideal intimate blank canvas, ready for dressing & transforming by the imaginative minds of location managers, wedding planners, pop-up stores or restaurant operators - and anyone in need of an intimate reception space.
Operated by the same events team behind Oval Space, The Pickle Factory boasts a large open plan reception hall, a dedicated kitchen space, disabled access, two separate entrances, toilet facilities and 3-phase power. Capacity ranges from 80 for seated dinners to 150+ for receptions.
The adjacent courtyard can be utilised to facilitate loading-in, as an additional reception point or for off-street parking. Long-term hire, dry hire or collaborative projects are all being considered for this lovely addition to East London's venue landscape.
