Located at the Royal Arsenal site in Woolwich, the Woolwich Creative District will be a creative hub in the heart of the Royal Borough of Greenwich. This influx of cultural events, companies, activities and spaces to newly renovated heritage buildings will restore the area’s creative profile and drive audiences to experience internationally acclaimed music, dance, theatre and art against a historically significant backdrop. In addition to providing a cultural resource for the local community, the site will attract visitors from across London, the UK and beyond and with the introduction of Crossrail.

Partner Rob Beiley, who led on the deal at Trowers & Hamlins commented:

"The Woolwich Creative District is set to be a new landmark destination for the City and we are thrilled to have played our part in such an important project and to have supported the Royal Borough in its commitment to establish the Creative District as a means of benefiting communities across the Borough.  The project is an exemplar of local authorities using cultural projects to facilitate urban regeneration with the community at its heart ".

Trowers & Hamlins are also advising the Royal Borough in relation to the establishment of the Woolwich Creative District Trust, which will be a charity established to oversee the long term operation and management of the entire Cultural Quarter.
