Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett has announced plans to launch another London venue.

The band’s keyboard player already opened Omeara in London Bridge back in 2016, and will add to it with new venue the Lafayette in February 2020.

It’ll be part of a redevelopment of the Kings Cross area, with the first shows to be announced soon.

Speaking about the venue, Ben explains: “It is with great pride that I can now share our plans to open Lafayette @ Goods Way which will be in the heart of King’s Cross, adjacent to Central St. Martins and Coal Drops Yard.

“I’m forever committed to pushing forward a new era of music venues that truly elevate people’s expectations of what that experience should be, and I believe London ought to continually strive to be at the forefront of the entertainment industry on a global stage, as the best city in the world.”

“It’s still early days in the venue’s construction but, this time, not only do we know exactly what it will be and why we’re doing it, but we’re now extremely confident that we know how to deliver it too!”
