The Mayfield project has plans to turn 24 Acres of industrial wasteland and the old station into a new cultural hub of music, arts and events with a £1bn neighbourhood.

Alongside the proposed main performance space at Depot, there will be two smaller areas. One of those, called Concourse, will be providing a range of free-to-attend community events, seasonal activities and food experiences.

The second space, called Archive, will offer a more intimate performance area as well as low-cost rehearsal and studio space for local artists.

Visitors can expect a range of globally significant performance from a diverse programme of cultural activities and artists. Discounted prices for residents, students, children, OAP’s and wheelchair users and their companions are also promised.

Depot is set to be a place to combine global and local, where international stars and local children have access to the same quality performance and studio space.

Mayfield is already established and will be home to several commissions, including hosting Invisible Cities as part of MIF19 from 5-14th July which will give you a sneak peak to the space before Pride. Reserve your seat for the MIF event here
