The WorkshopOnce the fire engine workshops of the London Fire Brigade, The Workshop on Albert Embankment in Lambeth is opening its doors once again, as a temporary community and events space. The 2,000 square metre industrial space houses an eclectic mix of creative tenants including the Institute of Imagination, Kidesign, Vivid Drinks, Mark Lloyd Bennett Design and multi-disciplinary artists Christopher Baxter and Luke Francis Haseler, all hosting regular interactive events. An additional community space - The Paint Shop - is also available for smaller scale community events such as craft meetings, book clubs and yoga classes. And the London Fire Brigade is marking its 150th anniversary by returning to the original location of its former head quarters with a free pop up museum, showing the history of fire-fighting through the story of London Fire Brigade in Lambeth.
