Welcome to your local Hackspace!

When you join our community you get:

  • 24/7 access to the space and tools
  • A vote in board member elections and a say in running the space
  • Access to community resources
  • Ability to run and take part in workshops and events (including Games Night)

Members pay a modest monthly subscription and volunteer their time to the running of the space. Jobs are big and small, whether it’s emptying the bins after your visit or running to be a director of the space.

We operate a Pay What You Can membership price – £25 a month pays all the bills, but you can pay anything from £20 a month.

Support is available for low-waged/unemployed members, proof of which may be requested by the directors. Continue to the sign up form to find out more.

Please note all members are expected to follow the rules.

Note: Members must be aged 18 or over due to the array of potentially dangerous tools we have around the space.

Before signing up

We recommend you come down to an open evening to check we’re the right fit for you. We’re entirely volunteer run and members are expected to pitch in and help out with the running of the community however they can. It’s how we keep our monthly fees low.

All members must attend a tour before being given independent access to the space, but you’re welcome to sign up and set up your subscription before then, so you’re ready to collect your key straight afterwards.
