O2 Arena

Fleetwood Mac kept cool during world tour performances

With a capacity of approximately 20,000, the O2 Arena in Greenwich is now recognised as the world’s busiest music venue – attracting over 2 million people per year. Its size and prime location make it the ideal place to host popular performers, with Fleetwood Mac among several acts to play there during a busy summer schedule.

The British-American rock band played two shows in London as part of their world tour, and their arrival in the capital coincided with the early July heatwave that swept much of the nation.

London Build exhibition proves successful for Sykes Pumps

Sykes Pumps were delighted to have the opportunity to exhibit at the London Build exhibition at the O2 Arena, Greenwich. Our largest depot is situated just a few hundred yards up the road in Charlton and acts as a centre point from which we serve all customers based in and around the capital.

The trade show enabled us to connect with some of the industry’s big players across the two days, and this introduction has already paved the way for a number of enquiries and potential projects.
