Hello, and welcome to the Rag Factory!
The Rag Factory was set up in early 2006 to provide affordable space for people working in the creative industries, whether performance-based, such as theatre, film, dance, music and fashion or visual arts such as painting, sculpture, photography, installation and graphic design. And being situated just off London’s Brick Lane, with fast access to both Liverpool Street and Aldgate East tube stations, we’re also very easy to reach.
While we’re regularly used as a casting and rehearsal space – we may not be in the West End, but we are very conveniently located for a number of Fringe and off-West End venues – we’ve also hosted a number of exhibitions, the occasional live art event, the London Zine Symposium and number of corporate events for clients like Red Bull and Orange.
And the Rag Factory has regularly been used as a filming location by MTV and the BBC (Newsnight and the Culture Show, in particular) and for countless music videos, short films and low-budget features.
So if you need space – whether to think, rehearse, film, work, meet, exhibit or just generally create wonderful things – with a Central London location but without the West End price tag, please browse the site, or feel free to come down and see us here in Heneage Street, just off Brick Lane.
The following events are confirmed for The Rag Factory in 2012. If you are involved in this event and wish to update your details or add further details / links, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org - thanks!
