Our space is kindly provided by our friends at 2020 Archery. It's not intended to be permanent, but it's an affordable place to get started - we pay £400/month in rent.


Entry is usually for paying Hackspace members and their guests only. Non-members are only allowed during the public weekly hack evenings, or other pre-arranged events.


Normal opening hours, not requiring a key-holder, are:

  • 17:00 - 21:30 Monday
  • 14:00 - 21:30 Tuesday - Thursday
  •     CLOSED     Friday
  • 12:00 - 18:30 Saturday and Sunday

If a key-holder is not present you must vacate the building at closing time.

After closing time, or on Fridays, entry to the building is by arrangement with a key-holder only, and exit is via the rear entrance in Barnsbury Square.

The key-holders are currently Russ Garrett and Jonty Wareing, you can contact them via the mailing list or IRC.
