Using the Space

We offer free organising and event space  for unfunded activist and self-organised education groups, and we ask those who can afford to make a donation on a sliding scale to support the space.

The space is bookable from Monday-Friday and sometimes at the weekend.


Help us keep going

While we receive some funding, and often apply for small grants for projects, our core operations currently run at a loss. Your donation, whatever its size, will mean that our staff can continue to organise and help maintain our building, keep our events free, activate our historical material, and facilitate a much-needed meeting place in central London in the spirit of solidarity. Anything you can give is greatly appreciated!
