About Former Granada/EMD

At the Former Granada/EMD, Willmott Dixon Interiors are working in partnership with the London Borough of Waltham Forest to deliver the refurbishment of Walthamstow’s Grade II* listed former EMD Cinema into a multi-purpose entertainment venue and cultural hub.

The new venue will be a high-profile, high-quality cultural offer in the borough, offering:

A 950-seat theatre, a selection of the best live comedy, music, and theatre, from all over the UK and beyond, a buzzing bar and foyer where artists, audiences and locals can meet and mingle together, community space, a restaurant catering for the local community and visiting audiences, community and outreach programmes and much more. 


The site tour will take visitors behind the scenes of the refurbishment and how the project is forming. Visitors will learn about the variety of roles on-site and gain first-hand knowledge and the ability to ask questions. 

All visitors will be required to wear PPE and follow a safe route. 

Information on Open Doors 2022 will be released shortly
