DIY Space For London finds venue

DIY Space For London secure a project space for DIY culture and radical activity

A community-run initiative set up in 2012 in order to fund a self-sustaining events and work space for London’s DIY music culture has found a venue in South East London.

At the time of writing, the DIY Space For London project has raised just under £20,000 through benefit gigs, events and community grants, enabling it to secure a five year lease on a multi-purpose warehouse space which will house events, rehearsals and meetings, as well as a members’ club bar.

DIY Space For London plans to open its doors this summer, and it’s currently looking for volunteers to help with everything from cleaning to sound proofing. More information can be found here.
