The Granville has begun taking bookings for workspaces and events ahead of its opening this spring.

Located on Carlton Vale, The Granville will boast a brand new workspace as well as a purpose-built community and venue space for hire, following the completion of the refurbishment of the building in March.

This multi-purpose space will house local organisations and businesses, and in the spirit of the iconic South Kilburn Studios, support local entrepreneurs and growing businesses. Additionally, The Granville will provide an affordable community space which will include event rooms, a café and a community garden.

The day-to-day management of The Granville will be led by the South Kilburn Trust, who will deliver a majority of the activities and support services in the space. These include employment services, business advice, legal advice and a range of community-focused activities. Other services and activities will be provided by local groups and organisations in South Kilburn.

Deanne Isaac, The Granville Hub Manager, said: “Interest in the work and event space is growing on a weekly basis and we thought it would be great to give the public the opportunity to pre-book space and come in and have a chat with us about their needs.

“The workspace is available to start-ups, established businesses, freelancers and local organisations, while the event space can be used for anything from work functions to birthday parties.”

Set across four floors, The Granville will also offer a café leading out to a community garden, music studios and a public space perfect for meeting and socialising.

Deanne continued to say: “Once up and running, The Granville is going to be a space with a difference – our offer is very competitive and quite unique.

“Businesses at the space will have access to a great range of free business development support and opportunities as part of their membership, as well as direct access to a strong network of businesses and the dynamic Granville community.”

South Kilburn Trust Chief Executive, Mark Allan, said: “We are building a community – The Granville Community – and in doing so challenging people’s perceptions and experiences of what community is.

“The Granville building was founded on the spirit of aspiration, support and togetherness, these are the very threads that bind together our vision, mission and objectives for The Granville and in turn South Kilburn.

“We are ecstatic to see positive steps towards this materialising and welcome everyone to join us on the wonderful journey.”

The Granville development journey started in April 2017 following the successful joint application by Brent Council and the South Kilburn Trust to the Greater London Authority for a grant to refurbish the much-loved building into a versatile, multi-use space.

Since then, the top floors of The Granville have been revamped and are now home to the South Kilburn Trust’s offices. The ground floors – which will accommodate the workspaces, the café and community support services – will be completed by spring in time for the grand opening.
