We are delighted to announce that we will be taking part in the 2023 Open House Festival.

Between Friday 15th-Sunday 17th September 2023, Clod Ensemble Studios in the Greenwich Peninsula Design District will open its doors to the public. Along with many other organisations across London, you will be able to come and visit our space in order to get a unique look at our work.

Designed by Mole Architects, the C2 Ziggurat building is a dedicated rehearsal and research space for Clod Ensemble’s genre-defying performance work. Comprising a 2000 square foot rehearsal room, top-lit studio, an open-plan office, music production studio and design studio.

Drop-in spaces are available throughout the weekend. Free to book, these drop-ins will allow you to look around our home as well as view micro-exhibitions and film screenings in the space.
