We’re making changes at Access Space

From Sat 1st November we’ll be working on these, so we’re suspending walk-in access to the media lab until we’ve organised our new programmes of activity. We aim to reopen the service in February. In the meanwhile, we’ll be providing weekly access on selected days, usually Saturdays. Access for Hackspace members is by arrangement, please email
PLEASE NOTE: We won’t be taking any more computers for recycling until February. Currently we have a back log. If you can, please hold on and donate your old technology next year.
Please BEAR with us while we’re in winter hibernation. See you in the Spring!
