About us

Copper Box Arena proudly operates under the banner of Better, a community focused brand managed by GLL. As a charitable social enterprise and worker-owned cooperative established in 1993, we've grown to be the UK's largest leisure and library service provider, boasting over 250 venues.

Being a charitable social enterprise, our mission extends beyond business. We're committed to benefiting everyone: from local communities and the environment to our dedicated staff and valued partners. This ethos has been recognised with awards such as the Social Enterprise Mark and the Prime Minister’s Big Society Award.

After collaborating with the Mayor of London and the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) during the bid for the 2012 London Olympics, we at Better are honoured to manage the centre, ensuring it remains open and welcoming for all.
