Bluewater's £60m Events Venue Takes Shape

The structure of Kent's Bluewater shopping centre's new event and exhibition venue has just started to take shape. It will be the first in the country to be attached to a shopping mall, and will doubtless benefit from Bluewater’s 500,000 weekly customers.

Opening at the end of October, the space will be split into four main areas: a 3,000sqm central plaza; the 1,970sqm Hall one; the 3,300sqm Hall two; and the Gallery Beam VIP area overlooking both the plaza and Hall two.

The venue has already been booked for two events, Clarion’s Spirit of Christmas gift show in November and a Dickensian-style Festive Food Fair in December.
