Since 1903, O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire has been a prominent landmark on London’s entertainment scene. Designed and built by Frank Matcham as the flagship of the “Empire” chain of variety theatres, it was taken under the wing of the BBC in the 1950s and converted into a television theatre. After a £2m refit, which retained the BBC’s technical infrastructure, the Empire opened in March 1994 as a 2000 capacity live venue. The music industry embraced it from the opening concert, and has consistently provided a wealth of talent in music, comedy and club nights.

The O2 Shepherds Bush Empire is a versatile multi use events space available for everything from live music events, filming, Fashion launches, weddings, parties, private dinners and receptions, and can also be fully seated suitable for awards ceremonies, exhibitions, product launches and corporate conferences guaranteed to impress any client. With onsite catering facilities, staging, AV/Technical equipment and event management support we can offer a unique experience to suit any event.
