The warehouse in which the V22 is currently based, is the old F Block of what used to be known as the Peek Frean’s Factory complex up until 1989. This is the place where the popular bourbon biscuit was first invented alongside a number of other treats for the sweet tooth. After a little wander on the web, here is a selection of vintage advertising posters from the days of the old Peek Frean’s Biscuit Factory. For more posters, visit our Facebook page here.
V22 is based in the F block of the old Biscuit Factory complex in Bermondsey. Over the last 5 years, it has been transformed from a dusty and derelict warehouse to a vast exhibition space divided mainly into two beautiful concrete halls, as well as a number of artist studios and workshops. The space benefits from high ceilings and natural light, and showcases a wide variety of events ranging from contemporary art exhibitions, to performances, to sound installations and many more. It also boasts a large roof terrace with stunning views of the city and a cafe offering delicious cooked food and beverages, which will be based in the exhibition space during the Summer Club.
V22 is a 5 minutes’ walk from Bermondsey tube on the Jubilee line and 15 minutes from Surrey Quays tube on the new East London line.
