Help the Royal borough of Greenwich name the new Creative District in Woolwich

Woolwich is embarking on a new chapter as the capital's next landmark cultural destination.  Five historic buildings will be refurbished to create a world-class complex of theatres, studios, offices and places to eat.  The flexible spaces will also be available for hire for community meetings, weddings, parties and other events. 

Royal borough of Greenwich now want to agree a name for this new landmark destination for the arts and the individual names for each building. They want unique, memorable names that acknowledge the past but are relevant for the future. Read about the history of the site.

Whilst it will bring new visitors to Woolwich, it’s really important that local people benefit too. Seventy per cent of the space will be used by cultural organisations and local community groups at subsidised rates. The site will also provide more than 400 local jobs as well as new roles during construction.  So, Royal Greenwich would like local people to tell them what they think about the names they're thinking about.  Your responses will help inform their decision.

The consultation will close on 27 May 2019.
