Platform, Hornsey Road, N7

Platform is a new performing arts centre for young people in Islington within the listed former laundry of the Hornsey Road Baths. The Centre features a multi-purpose and flexible space for performance, a media centre and recording studios, dance studios and rehearsal space as well as a café and other social spaces. Platform is envisaged to act as a 'universal front door', designed to make a real difference to the lives and prospects of young people in the area, raising their ambitions and aspirations, and open up new and exciting opportunities to young people. The project received a £3.5 million Big Lottery ‘MyPlace’ grant.
