Development and regeneration in Barking and Dagenham

Exclusive: creative studio space fully let

By James Wood - Wed 19 April 2017, 1:07 pm

All studios at the Bow Arts creative workspace in Barking have been let, it was announced last night.

The news was revealed by Darren Rodwell, leader of Barking and Dagenham Council, at an event to reflect on the borough’s achievements over the last year and the local authority’s attendance at MIPIM, last month’s global property conference in Cannes. 

Creativity and culture have played a big part in Barking and Dagenham’s regeneration story during the last few years, with the success of other ventures such as the Ice House Quarter attracting artistic organisations to move to the borough, as well as the increased activity of Barking and Dagenham’s dedicated film office, which has seen production companies film TV shows such as Black Mirror and Humans and films including Harry Brown.

Plans are also now in place to create London's first film studios for 25 years in Dagenham, at the Londoneast-uk Business and Technical Park, as revealed by BOLD last October.

The borough's blooming cultural scene has been documented by BOLD magazine, which is available here.
