The creative hub is located in the Old Vic Tunnels near Waterlook station and has space for an art gallery, live music venue and workshops, as well as London’s only indoor skateboard park. It is the second of these event spaces to open after Vans launched the first in Brooklyn, USA.

It will be open for three years and offers people the change to see live music and art for free, as well as skateboard. The aim is to integrate the Vans brand into the London creative scene and offer its fans a new way to experience the brand beyond its shops.
