About Us

Carousel is an award-winning creative hub that can accommodate events of all different kinds, from international guest chef residencies and art exhibitions to brand activations and press days. Split across three buildings – two in Marylebone and one in Seven Dials – and totalling just under 8,000 sq. ft., Carousel’s stylish and ultra-flexible blank canvas spaces can accommodate events of all different shapes and sizes, dry hire or bespoke. And unlike conventional event venues we’re able to offer a wide range of additional extras, all done in- house to the highest standard, thoughtfully and creatively; from top-notch food and drink to friendly staffing. 

Shuttlecock Inc is a creative production company founded on the belief that with a little bit of humour and imagination, you can bring even the dullest brief to life. We’re good at lots of things but what we really excel at are top-notch food and drink, jaw-dropping theatrical sets, irreverent immersive theatre and creative soundscapes. Put those four elements together and you can do extraordinary things.

2020 promises to be our most exciting yet as we look to expand the Carousel & Shuttlecock footprint, taking on new sites and continuing to partner up with an impressive portfolio of cutting edge brands such as Converse, Estée Lauder, Drunk Elephant, Nikon, Lulu Lemon, Google, Penguin, Instagram, The Guardian and the NFL.
