The site is immediately adjacent to the O2 indoor arena which attracts anything from 7,000 to 15,000 people per event on up to 200 days of the year. O2 is a state of the art performance space, creatively adapted from the ‘Point Depot’ an iconic, industrial railway shed, converted for concerts and performance generally.
