Performance space

Canada Water Library offers a modern approach to the library experience. One unique feature to the library is the 150 seat culture space, equipped with professional lighting, sound and projection. The space lends itself to a range of performance based events, seminars and conferences, and can cater to most medium scale events and productions.

The culture space is managed by the Albany, who have a three year tenure to coordinate and deliver a range of events within the space.

What's on

Regular and specially programmed events will take place in the culture space each week. Find out what's on and how to book.


The culture space is open to community and corporate bookings. In addition to the culture space there is the opportunity to hire the meeting and learning rooms situated on the upper floors of the library, which boast spectacular views over London.
