Ugly Duck Venue Hire SE1
Ugly Duck is a Victorian warehouse with three floors of exposed brick walls and ex-industrial features, providing a unique and inspiring environment.
Located in SE1, a stone’s throw from Tower Bridge, Ugly Duck is an atmospheric, historical and flexible venue for corporate and private functions, fashion shows, launches and events.
With five dynamic event spaces spread across three floors, the options are endless. The spaces can be hired individually for more intimate events or exclusively to enable use of the entire building. The on-site management team are available to support with all aspects of your event.
Many of our spaces are recognizable as the setting for an exciting range of film and TV shoots. Previous clients include BBC Dragon’s Den and Naomi Campbell’s new hit show The Face.Packages

We take vacant buildings and underused public places and bring them into creative use. These spaces provide an incubation space for different disciplines, and for communities to come together.
Working with a network of high-calibre creatives we run a year-round programme of public events. With a focus on multidisciplinary art, new media and events that advocate for social change.
We manage stunning buildings on behalf of landlords, available for rent to the film and events industries. All profits from hires go towards supporting artistic and community activities.
We provide commercial services to landlords, local authorities and others that breathe life into spaces. We can provide logistical support to clients using our buildings. We create unique live experiences.
We host events and projects in the spaces we manage, covering the spectrum of visual and performing arts. We offer a regular programme of workshops and manage projects outside our spaces.
