Particularly associated with the modern art scene of the times, The Arts Lab on Drury Lane was a creative hub housing a gallery, theatre and cinema, where Andy Warhol’s ‘Chelsea Girls’ premiered prior to becoming the film which crossed from art-house to the mainstream with incredible success. Yoko Ono & John Lennon’s first joint artwork "Build Around" exhibited at the space in 1968 with David Bowie also rehearsing and performed here in the early days of his career.
