Tobacco Dock is a Grade 1 Listed venue situated between the city and Canary Wharf. It was constructed in approximately 1811 and it served primarily as a store for imported tobacco and luxury goods. In the 1980’s, the space was then converted into a shopping village, which failed due to an undeveloped area and no large brands committing. Relaunched in 2012, Tobacco Dock Venue Ltd is a unique and interesting space that can offer complete flexibility, the old shopping aspects of the site sets it apart from all its competitors.
The venue can accommodate up to 10,000 standing with our largest space the Great Gallery holding 1500 theatre style plus a 1200 person seated awards ceremony. In addition to this we have over 35 event spaces that can accommodate 100-to 650-theatre style.
We have held 4 gaming events, which included the prestigious Bafta Gaming awards in March. Alongside this we have managed to gain business from numerous wine fairs trebling the partnerships we already had. We have grown our account with shoe giants Clarks and they have now held over 4 Press days and product launches with us. This is unusual for the brand as they normally change venue in the consecutive year, this just shows the versatility and support that we offer at Tobacco Dock.
We are the new alternative to excite and engage. Gone are the days of stuffy hotel rooms and fake walls, incandescent lighting and soggy sandwiches. Tobacco Dock offers the historic and modern, natural daylight, unlimited branding potential, space, and the freedom to grow.
