London Film School has found a tally new home on London City Island, the latest ‘glassandsteel’ Docklands neighbourhood to spring up on the capital’s eastern fringe. The LFS is following in the footsteps of the English National Ballet, and its associated school, that announced in May 2015 they would’ve been swapping their Kensington home in West London for a purposebuilt venue in the new neighbourhood.
