Good news - we're open for limited services in Wembley. Ujima House is now actively under refurbishment and we'd love your help in making the space the best it can be.

Please pay attention to the main LHS mailing list or pop into our #london-hack-space IRC channel and say hello.

During this interim period donations and continued membership are greatly appreciated while we transition to our new space.

New Hackspace

We moved! So much has been happening, the news may lag behind a bit.

The new rent is 4 times as much as our previous space, so we're currently in a spending freeze until we can make up the subscriptions. We can currently support ourselves for up to 3 months maximum.

Space Warming Party

We had a space warming party and barbecue to celebrate the new space, with a huge number of people visiting.

RFID Access

We've had people in the space every evening since we moved in, and we've finally got a cool hacker entry system for members.

Jonty installed a new pan/tilt camera

Pledges

After a failed eBay bid a new way of purchasing high-value equipment has been pioneered. This has been necessary for coping with the spending freeze.

So far we've received pledges for:

  • Fridge
  • Laser Cutter
  • MIG welder
  • Bubble Etch Tank
